This is a relaxed club for those who share the love of horses. This ongoing class meets weekly as a club that can be joined any time, does not build on itself, and no two meetings are alike. Each week we start with icebreaker questions, talk about horse news from around the world, show and tell, discuss topic prompts, training, care and anything and everything related to living the "horse life". Class will include lively discussion, horse history, fun activities, trivia, horse memes, sharing...
Students will be able to engage in lively and educational discussions of all things related to horses. I want to hear their experiences, as I can learn from them, but I also want to help them in any way I can with their questions. I also want to provide an outlet for kids that want to get to talk to others who are like-minded.
I have over a decade of professional, academical, and recreational experience in the equine industry.
Students are more than welcome to share horse related art, movies they've seen, books they've read, etc. if they wish. The only true prerequisites are a passion for horses, a teachable spirit, and a desire to connect with others who enjoy horses as well :)
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I have a few general rules that I like to abide by so our classes run smoothly: 1. Avoid interrupting the teacher/other students. I know internet lag can cause overlap, so try to make sure the other person is done talking first to help mitigate this. Raising your hand if you have a question or comment also helps keep things orderly and gives everyone a chance to talk. 2. Participate in class in a quiet room, if possible. If there is background noise, please mute yourself unless you are speaking. 3. Per Outschool policy, parents must stay off camera and not interact with the class (this includes posing as the child in the chat and messaging functions, telling the child what to say or do, challenging/asking/interacting with the teacher). Of course, if your student is having technical difficulties you can help them. I am more than happy to interact with parents outside of class time via Outschool’s private messaging system. 4. Do not distract the class by abusing drawing tools in Zoom. 5. Use the chat box for things relevant to class. I check it every time that it is used and if it is for goofing off it takes away time from other students who are paying attention. 6. Per Outschool policy, all students must turn on their cameras so I can confirm their identity for safety reasons. Once I have confirmed this, I have no problem with them preferring to keep the camera off. 7. If you are having internet connectivity issues, please let me know. 8. If the student will be absent for a class, please let me know ahead of time if possible so I can adjust the class accordingly. 9. Students that are misbehaving get two warnings, then the third offense will result in the child being put in the Zoom waiting room until the class has concluded. No refunds will be given if this has occurred. For any inquiries/comments regarding classes, please message me privately so I can do my best to address your needs. Thanks!
