Pamela Witt graduated from Southwest Baptist University with her Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. While looking for the best approach to teach children in urban magnet schools, she was then selected to attend the Rudolf Steiner Waldorf Education in the Public Schools Institute in Fair Oaks California. This approach was one in which she saw great results when teaching children of different abilities within the classroom, helping them reach their full potential and develop accountability for their own learning. After teaching in the Jefferson County Public Schools, she continued her education by attending University of Missouri-Columbia and earning her Masters in Special Education with an Emphasis in Autism. She is certified as an equine specialist through EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning), as a Horse Boy™ 1 practitioner and is certified as a Horse Boy™ Movement Method provider.
To fully implement the Horse Boy™ learning program, we have been adding features to our facilities with the program in mind. Our facilities include an outdoor sensory area, a large outdoor riding arena, and a fenced Paddock Play area.
The Equine Discovery Center offers many different services, like our horse boy learning sessions, early intervention services, developmental services and sensory friendly business services.
