What are Teaching Guides?

Instead of creating traditional lesson plans for the HorseSense curriculum, we’ve compiled our favorite methods of teaching unmounted lessons into teaching guides for specific topics. Each collection of activities can be scaled to suit the time allowed and your intended audience. 

HorseSense students might be regulars in your mounted program, or non-riding students wanting to interact with horses. They might be beginners or experienced riders wishing to fill gaps in their unmounted education. They might be parents or students considering horse ownership.

Your unmounted lesson program might need to be flexible and unique! We hope you are able to use these Teaching Guides as a general guideline and a source of inspiration.

All teaching guides include:

We’ve been blessed with many talented photographers over the years: students who voluntarily stood in sweltering/ freezing arenas, capturing lifelong memories of lessons, camps and shows. We’re grateful to all of them!

One former student, Delaney Witbrod, is now a professional photographer with a gift for animal portraits – see more of her fine work here. We’re also grateful for photos of Western riding donated by LLPro instructors – particularly Bit of Pleasure Horse School and Joyful Hearts Photography!

You’ll find illustrations throughout our online courses and printed materials graciously donated by our friend Rhonda Hagy. Evan Surrusco contributes additional illustrations and handles most of our photo processing. Contact us for information about their work.
