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.

- Books with horse stories and pictures for you to read and look at.
