Horse Tales Literacy Project (formerly The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation) helps children discover the joys of reading and the excitement of learning through the wonders of live horses and the Black Stallion books by Walter Farley, as well as other classic horse literature.
Our goals are to spark the imagination of first grade students so they will want to learn to read, and to motivate fourth and fifth graders so they will experience the joy of reading.
This event at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center will focus on fourth and fifth graders. The fourth-fifth grade program continues the legacy of reading by providing all the children with their own copy of The Black Stallion, a universally recognized children’s classic. Children are also introduced to the critically acclaimed 1979 movie of the same name. The program concludes with an interactive experience with live horses!

Jacksonville Equestrian Center
I am a volunteer with the American Trakehner Association and a Florida Trakehner breeder. I am writing to ensure you are aware that the American Trakehner Association convention is being held this year at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center on Nov. 11-13, and to invite any/all of your members to come participate in the events!
We are aware of the many assets the JEC brings to north Florida and are actively involved in encouraging the ATA to designate Jacksonville as one of four permanent, rotating sites for our annual conventions. An involved and interested public would go a long way towards making that point!
You may be already know that the ATA keeps a closed stud book as it slowly rebuilds this oldest of the warmblood breeds from near extinction after WWII, when there were as few as 10 breeding mares left from the great Trakehner stud mare herds. For this reason, our inspections are very important and one of the highlights of our conventions. We will have a stallion and a mare inspection at this convention, as well as voluntary marks on foals being presented.
