“Books in the Barn”

In 2013, Healing Healing created a one-of-a-kind program, unique to Arizona.  “Books in the Barn” is designed for pre-k to school-aged children to practice, strengthen, and utilized their literacy skills in front of a rescue horse.  This mutually beneficial program teaches trust for both child and horse, without fear or judgement.

While being at the barn children also learn about horses and proper horse care; what they eat, time and management, natural training methods, tools used to groom them and equipment used to ride.

Schools, boys and girls clubs, troops, service groups, special needs and at-risk children are welcome to participate in “Books in the Barn.” Please contact Jen Brumbaugh at for more information.
