Evidence of Program's Success

It takes a lot to get kids to enjoy reading these days. During the summer, it's even more difficult. That can lead to students slipping an entire grade level in reading when school starts again in the fall. What FVHRR does is match currently rescued burros, twice a week, with elementary school aged students to read to a rescued burro. Huge Success with waiting list.

Description

This Horse Intervention Program is implemented and managed throughout the year. Our mental/spiritual program aims to meet the psychological needs of our participants to the degree that our resources can provide, in balance with our emphasis on safety in horsemanship and preparing horses for their new homes.
Our FVHRR Board of Directors is concerned about the pressing and increasing need for mental health resources in Summit and Park Counties. This program is designed to be a means to meet more needs within our community using the rehabilitated rescue horses that we already house and support.

Description

Providing a welcoming, safe and educational environment for children to learn about what it takes to run a horse rescue. The day is divided into thirds. The three areas from beginning to end that are covered each day are: First, mucking, feeding and rescue maintenance. Second, taking a rescue horse and working with that horse on skills that need to be developed that are listed on the rescue's chart. Third, working on riding skills with the ridable horses. We, as a community, are stakeholders in a young person's success.

Evidence of Program's Success

90% of our adoptable equines have been matched up with good forever homes. We continue to work with all of our rescues, knowing that they will all eventually be matched up with a great for-ever home and this program is a huge part of training our horses.

We also send out surveys at the end of the year to our participants.
