The program encour- ages readers to bring their own books that are at their own reading level. The facility also has books for them to read as well. "There's older students and young adults who are having reading trouble as well," Froidcoeur said. "It's not just for kids." Participants who engage in the RED -y To Read program are allowed to read to the animal for an hour. Certified horse trainers observe the animal during the session to ensure the comfort and safety of all. Many who read to the horses are excited at the opportunity to do so, Froidcoeur said. Children who may not be excited about reading are inter- ested in reading to the animal. "They are motivated to read to the horse," Froid- coeur said. "Most kids love horses. They get excited about reading to them." The idea to bring the program to RED Arena began after Froidcoeur learned of other success- ful reading-to-animal programs. She said that, in the past, programs offered the chance for readers to improve their skills by reading to dogs, such as the "Read to Chopper" program held weekly atparents are receptive to it for a larger plot of land theW'unbefleyV'fllage and the kids are thrilled." to house a bigger facility Library.
