After buying gifts for friends, and horse treats for a favourite horse, kids calculate which saddle soap is a better buy. The 7oz (198g) bar of saddle soap at $7.95? The 12oz or 340g tin of saddle soap priced at $9.95, or the smaller, 3.5oz (100g) tin for $3.95?

I ordered all of the available worksheets! I was always trying to put our math problems into “horsey” situations, but this does the work for me!!! I use the worksheets as a break from the drudgery of “required” high school courses so my daughter can practice life-applicable math that corresponds with her passion – horses!! Yes, I said high school. While these math problems are geared toward younger students, my daughter is not strong in math, and I like giving her review of concepts she’s had before. It boosts her confidence before returning to the advanced math (high school required courses) that she dreads. I highly recommend these worksheets (you have to print yourself or just download and do them on the computer)! Covers lots of important math concepts for any age (from 4th grade up)!! I’ve purchased a lot of material for homeschooling, and this is my favorite!!!
