Obstacle Course Maps

We have obstacle course sets for Red-Teal Levels. Each set contains five course maps, with a supplementary page of information alongside each map.

While the courses are our own creation, they contain many familiar elements found in mounted games, western trail, extreme cowboy racing, and other disciplines. We find that practicing many different forms of horsemanship keeps our students engaged and open-minded, and helps them become versatile, well-rounded riders.

Each obstacle course map contains:

Equitation Patterns

We have equitation pattern sets for Red-Teal Levels. Each set contains five patterns, with a supplementary page of information alongside each map.

While the patterns are our own creation, they contain many familiar elements found in hunt seat, dressage and western horsemanship tests. We find that challenging students with patterns is beneficial whether they intend to compete or not — but if they do, we hope these exercises will prepare them for show ring success.

Jump Course Maps

We have jump course sets for Red-Teal Levels. Each set contains five jump course maps, with a supplementary page of information alongside each map.

While the courses are our own creation, they contain many familiar jumping exercises found in hunter, equitation and jumper rings. We find that challenging students with courses is beneficial whether they intend to show or not — and whether they jump ground poles or actual fences! If your students do compete, we hope these exercises will help prepare them for show ring success.

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.
