Free Horse Unit Study Resources

Free Horse Unit Study Resources

 

Just saw a post of a forum that a family was looking for resources to go along with FIAR books, The Wild Horses of Sweetbriar and The Finest Horse in Town. Both of these have to do with horses so I wanted to help out by doing a quick google search. Since I found so many wonderful and free resources I created this free horse unit study resource post to share!

My daughter was very interested in horses a couple of years ago. So we did start a lapbook that we found free online as well as a 107 page Horse Unit Study from Oakes Homeschool Consulting co-op (a group of families got together and researched a topic and created a HUGE amount of information!). This mega resource is on sale for . 50 a complete steal if you ask me!

We checked out books at the library and tried to learn some things. We realized we needed some hands-on horse experience and so we called a friend of ours who owns a pony and some horses. She was gracious enough to let Princess and Eldest ride on Little Eddie while she lead him down her long lane. She also helped with what parts of a horse are called, grooming tools, and markings.

I am hoping that Princess gets the learning bug again about horses and we can finish the lapbook. I think listening to Black Beauty or watching a few movies about horses on netflix will spark some interest. Once again we will call our friend and even let Lil’ Red ride if he’d like!

Horse Treats:

Special Note:  Horses should not be fed peanuts, because they cannot digest them and it clogs their intestines. According to one vet, peanut butter will not hurt them.  Please use your own judgment or check with your vet when in doubt.

Easy to Make Horse Treat Recipes-All horses love treats and your horse will love your homemade horse treats. Making horse cookies and other goodies is easy and can be done using ingredients that you most likely already have.

No Bake Homemade Horse Treats

Make Your Own Horse Treats: These are special treats for your favorite horse.
