Hog Hollow Rescue Horses Rescue Humans Community Project:
Creating an opportunity for children in Kurland Village is the main goal. This makes them form a good relationship based on trust with the herd of rescue horses. They will also connect with themselves through the principles of Yoga.
Firstly it is teaching children how to behave around horses. They focus on body language, movement, sound, how to put a halter on, lead and tack up their horse.
Secondly, it teaches children to take responsibility and how to care for horses by gaining necessary skills. Such skills are feeding, grooming, cleaning hooves, tacks, paddocks, cleaning water and feed buckets.
Another objective is teaching children to mount, dismount and do the basic paces of riding including walk, trot and canter.
Including children in a positive and creative environment is another objective because they will learn life skills and trust. They can also understand project management and set goals by putting them in an action plan.
