Ultimate homeschool list for horse lovers

They call it the horse bug and she’s got it bad. My 8 year old daughter simply can not get enough! She owns dozens of horse books and checks out new ones from the library each week. To say that she loves horses is really a major understatement. Naturally, I wanted to capitalize on this interest in our homeschool. Here is the ultimate homeschool list for horse lovers.

    We loved doing History of the Horse as a project! Then we got to go see the Lipizzaner horses perform while we were in Oregon. It was a great way to end our notebook project. Thanks for including my copybook in your collection!

    Circle C is awesome! The website has free handbooks to print out that go along with each book. They teach a variety of things and my daughter and her friends will read them without being asked.

    We went through a horse phase, too! A Journey Through Learning has a lap book that is a general mammal study, so you can pick which animal you want to lap book. Then, when your kids find another animal they want to study, you can use it again! :) We also learned about the Chincoteague horses of Maryland and Virginia. There is a book called Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry that is on our book list for next year. She has written several other books about horses, too.

    Love this post. My 7kids yr old is obsessed with horses (she just had a horse themed party). We volunteer at a horse rescue every week and she starts lessons next month. Thanks for these great resources.

    My daughter is a freshmen and is wanting to work with horses once she graduates. Her love of horses is never going to pass! Do you have any suggestions for studies for high school in this area? I have been looking for electives for the next years. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Thank you! This is exactly what I need! My five year old loves horses! She has been riding since she was two! We are going to the Midwest horse fair in Wisconsin for the second time this April. I am so glad to have found all this wonderful resources to share with my kids.

    For a slightly older child, 4-H sells their curriculum and publishes a multipart horse study. It was perfect for my 7th grader.
