WDM Saskatoon - Giddy Up and Whoa

It’s On a Horse and Wagon Ride We Go!
Program for Preschools

Swishing his tail and pointing his nose,
Over the hill the horsie goes;
Pulling the wagon with us inside-
Oh how happy we are for the ride.

In the barn we keep 5 - 6 fancy sleighs that children can sit in and view close-up. Many groups take class pictures in the sleighs, so bring your cameras. It could be Santa’s sleigh!

- You will have an opportunity to look at “horsie” items
- What do you use to care for your horse? Samples of combs, bits, horse shoes and nails are provided.
- Books with horse stories and pictures for you to read and look at.
- Pictures of horses to colour and take home.
- 1910 Boomtown buildings: the Harness Shop and the Livery Stable both relate to the role of horses in our past.
