Galop, galop, galop, galop!For this part, we said the rhyme and did different movements for the each section. For the last galop, we would all fall down to the ground.

|Take-Home||I’m currently not in the mood for crafts, so I made a take-home food bar. I called it a Horse Bar and I put favorite food of horses. We had carrots, pretzels (as a substitute for hay), and marshmallows (as a substitute for sugar cubes). This was a big hit with the crowd.
