Learning Levels
for Equine Education

Helping riding instructors develop safe, skillful riders on happy, healthy horses!

Resources for time-challenged riding instructors

If you’re like most equine professionals, you have a lot of demands on your time. This can make it hard to take your business to the next level.

We’ve been there. That’s why we’ve put in the time to develop a system for your equine education program —  a curriculum, lesson plans, study guides, course maps and patterns, worksheets and barn games — giving you more time to enjoy your students and horses.

Stuff Happens Cards for Instructors

Stuff Happens Cards for Instructors

You can use the little scenarios in our popular Stuff Happens sets to start discussions with students about safety issues, adding your own anecdotes to make them even more effective and memorable.

But if you teach riding or horse care, you know that weird stuff happens to instructors, too! 

So we put together a set of cards that you can enliven with your own bizarre stories and share with assistant instructors and other equine professionals.

The whole Learning Levels curriculum checklist  has been online and free for anyone to use since 2007. Download it HERE – then go do good things with it!

Horse people may all have their own way of doing things, but our lifestyle and love of horses keeps us connected – and that’s something we are always thankful for.

We have been blessed with many talented photographers over the years: students who voluntarily stood out in a sweltering/ freezing arena – or slogged up and down our hilly pastures – capturing lifelong memories of camps, clinics, and shows. We’re grateful to all of them!

One such student, Delaney Witbrod, is now a professional photographer with a gift for animal portraits – see more of her fine work here.

You’ll also find illustrations throughout our online courses and printed materials (like study guides) graciously donated by Rhonda Hagy, who is a student and lifelong friend. Contact us for information about her work.

Are we lucky or WHAT?!
