Horse organisations bring school subjects to life
The British Horseracing Education and Standards Trust (BHEST) has joined forces with World Horse Welfare to provide an educational experience for schoolchildren.
This was the first time that the BHEST delivered an educational day at a non-racing venue as its officials taught children from Great Hockham primary, Norfolk, about welfare and care of equines.
Children, aged seven to eight, were delighted to meet some of the rescued horses in residence at the World Horse Welfare's Hall Farm in the county.
The BHEST's Racing to School programme aims to bring children to racing environments with the aim of making school subjects more engaging and interactive.
Executive director of BHEST Judith Allen said the day last week (September 12th) allowed the children to touch and pet the horses, which isn't always possible in a racing environment.
"Our partnership with World Horse Welfare enabled us to realise a dream for this group, support them to practise their school subjects outside in the open air and increase their understanding of horse welfare," she continued.
