National Day of the Horse is always the second Saturday of December. This day was created to bring awareness of the contribution of horses to the economy, history and character of the United States.
For the study of horses I highly recommend HISTORY OF THE HORSE STUDY GUIDE by Hilary Severson, offered by Beautiful Feet Books. My 12 year old daughter is a HUGE horse fan, always has been. She did this study 2 years ago. She enjoyed it so much that she did it in her free time!
HISTORY OF THE HORSE STUDY GUIDE covers equine history using the texts “The Handbook of Horses” and “Album of Horses”. Living books such as “Black Beauty, King of the Wind, Misty of Chincoteague and Black Stallion” are the backbone of the curriculum. Notebooking is incorporated into each lesson so at the end of the year your student will have a beautiful hand made book of what they have studied.
