State Line Tack® is pleased to announce their new Equestrian Diversity Project initiative. Born out of their recently started Program Spotlight series, the Equine Diversity Project will be a broader, more comprehensive partnership with dozens of equine programs operating across the country. These organizations work tirelessly to ensure that children, of all ages and from all walks of life, can experience the life-changing power of the horse.
The Equestrian Diversity Project will focus on a different organization every month. State Line Tack® donates equine supplies so that the participants have up-to-date equipment in good repair, and will also interview a board member, craft a blog entry, and post on their social media platforms to further promote program awareness. The inaugural program for the project was Philadelphia Urban Riding Academy (PURA), featured in August 2020.
This month’s featured program is Saddle Up and Read (SUAR). Founded in 2017, SUAR was developed with the hopes of improving literacy rates in the Wendell, NC area. Two-thirds of kids in America who aren’t reading proficiently by fourth grade will end up on welfare or in jail, and that statistic disproportionately affects children of color. SUAR is committed to encouraging youths to read by creating a library of books featuring black equestrians, and by connecting reading and horses in a responsibility/reward structure.
