RES 2nd Grade Field Trip to Kentucky Horse Park

The 2nd grade classes of Ms. Ainsley Bussell and Mrs. Emily Craig enjoyed a day at the Kentucky Horse Park. The students favorite part of the trip was getting to tour the Kid’s barn, grooming horses,  a scavenger hunt, and seeing a variety of breeds of horses, including a favorite American racing horse named, Tiny. The students learned how to be safe around horses. They shared it’s important to stay quiet, be calm, don’t run at horses, and do not get behind a horse. They explained that horses are easily frightened and scared and by following these important tips you can stay safe and not startle the horses. The field trip info was submitted by the 2nd grade students in the pictures and Abby Ramey and Spencer Clark from 2nd grade.
