Literacy Excellence Program
Hank the Horse™ visits libraries to empower and encourage children of all ages to achieve literacy excellence.
With declining literacy statistics and school dropouts increasing at alarming rates...it is clear to Hank that something needs to be done!
“For Hank's Sake's success can be measured in how many hearts we have touched, and how many minds we have changed”.
~Tammi Regan, Hank’s Mom, Founder, For Hank’s Sake
THE TRAIL FORWARD
Horses and Libraries have partnered in the past, Hank the Horse™ and Tammi are traveling in the steps of the Packhorse Library program, a rich part of Kentucky's History. The effectiveness of this type of partnership was proven as literacy rates climbed in 1935 when the program was started to help children access books. For Hank’s Sake is also opening a world of reading to children in need of hope for a better future. The foundation has been laid through the success of Hank's partnership with Kentucky libraries. Hank is stepping up the pace to get more books into the hands and minds of children everywhere.
Through increased literacy rates we can see students excel in confidence, educational achievement, and greater success. We have created pathways through creative, engaging and effective reading programs for children. Hank the Horse is on a mission to continue giving children a brighter future through his fun and engaging reading programs.
Hank is Pressing on with Purpose...
Bringing hope to young lives and minds...one book at a time.

ADVENTURES IN WISDOM
Life Coaching for Kids™
Stories are a powerful way to communicate. Using stories, Adventures in Wisdom® helps kids develop a mindset for happiness, confidence, and success in their lives.
Imagine sharing a story with a child and suddenly seeing them discover their magnificence. That is powerful!
Mindset Skills are the key to instilling confidence in kids. Stories are the Answer! We Inspire and Empower Kids…ONE STORY AT A TIME. ONE BOOK AT A TIME.
Through Hank the Horse’s regular visits to libraries throughout Kentucky to promote literacy, children experience the joy of meeting a horse in real life. Also, for children unable to participate in a live library meet up, Hank the Horse can be seen online for story time where they can listen and observe him in his natural environment at Equinox Stables, Hank’s home on the farm.
Our goal is to create an online learning portal for children to complete the Adventures in Wisdom Coaching Program by virtual methods so we can reach and impact kids all over the world
