About The Program
The Take the Reins Project is an education initiative that pairs the local schools with the Kentucky Equine Adoption Center to supplement core curriculum in areas of math, science, writing, art, and public speaking. The horses enhance learning outcomes such as responsibility, care, and the importance of giving back. Each school participating in the Take the Reins Project sponsors a horse from the Center for one school year with the understanding (and hope) that the horse could be adopted. The sponsored horse serves as the cornerstone for the school’s curriculum and engagement with the Center.
Take The Reins is a program that educates and focuses on:
1) The importance of giving back
3) Being a competent horse and animal owner
