History of the Horse

"I bought History of the Horse for my fourth grade daughter, and I am so pleased with my choice! It was a huge hit with her! She mostly loved the great stories and the drawing assignments integrated into the lessons. felt it was a great curriculum for introducing her to more independent learning and research skills." 
-Jimmie from Curriculum Choice

"This wonderful study covers science and history as well, but I've assigned it primarily for the literature piece. It uses the Marguerite Henry horse books in addition to other great literature like The Black Stallion and Black Beauty. [My daughter] is really enjoying the study."
-Melissa from Reflections from Drywood Creek

"My son loved this program!" 
-Jess M.

"I got this program for my daughter who is a horse fanatic. She loved learning so much about horses. She was so excited to do this study because she could not believe learning about horses actually counted as "school". She still cherishes these books several years later and will not part with them."
