Rearing2Read improves children's literacy skills through equine-assisted learning experiences and hands-on reading activities around the farm.

Not All Classrooms Have Four Walls

Rearing2Read is a non-profit located in Hillsborough, North Carolina. It follows the Horse Powered Reading® curriculum to help students find confidence and motivation to read while also filling in the gaps in the learner's reading abilities. 

Countless research has been done on the therapeutic effect that horses can have on children. 

Together, the learners, horses, and facilitators work together to explore each child's unique road to becoming a stronger reader.
