Want students to remember what you teach?

Challenge students to apply that information with printed worksheets and fun interactive learning games that reinforce concepts and terminology.

We use several different types of worksheets and games to help our students learn:


Use Written Materials Wisely

Written materials can help students retain information and remind them of key points and details. If kept in a binder or folder, completed worksheets and quizzes keep information readily available when students need a quick review.

But kids get a LOT of that in school, so it’s important to use well-crafted materials that produce a positive outcome. Whether you use worksheets as horsey homework or in group unmounted lessons, make sure you…

...keep learning fun!

A few helpful guidelines for using worksheets to teach horsey topics:

If you want students to keep written materials for future reference, give them a folder or binder. Otherwise, they will promptly lose all paperwork!

The key to effective competitions? Keep them relaxed and supportive.

Here are a few tips for maintaining a positive vibe in group learning games:

At summer day camp, we award cheap strings of colorful beads for every challenge. The beads can be worn during unmounted activities (but of course, must be safely stored while riding!). At the end of camp, the team that has accumulated the most beads earns first pick of the popsicle flavors and big applause at our camp closing ceremony. It’s easy and it works!

Most games can be easily adapted for individual students:

We have an annual Summer HorseSense Challenge: the student who completes the most unmounted objectives by the end of the summer wins a prize. Any objectives earned during our Level Up summer day camps are counted in the total. The winning student’s picture and all participating students’ scores are then published on our Facebook page. 

Use creative group learning activities to strengthen those important bonds!

The best reason to cultivate a riding school “barn family” is that you end up with a core of students – both adults and children – who like to do horsey things together.

When you provide fun educational opportunities for your groups, it helps everyone get more invested in the community – and consequently more likely to sign up for the next activity. Trust us, it works!

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.
