I was reading through the bio of an independent author on Goodreads who has recently released a novel and it said that she worked as part of the Interscholastic Equestrian Association. This is an initiative that works to educate middle school and secondary level children on the benefits of equestrian competition.
I think this is a great way to encourage students who have a passion for riding horses and who are considering it as a future goal. Their dream may be to represent their school, state or even country in horse riding and I feel that encouraging equine education in schools is a great way to go about it.
If you’re passionate about horse riding and are of school age, this program may be worth looking into. Likewise, for careers teachers or encouraging parents, it may be worth finding out about to consider if it could be implemented in your school.
