Green Level

The Green Horsemanship Level is a beginner level, designed to further develop students’ basic skills on the flat while preparing them to jump. This Level introduces the canter and emphasizes the importance of fitness and balance.

Unmounted students who learned basic terminology and safety rules in Red and Yellow Levels are now ready to apply that knowledge in Green Level HorseSense, practicing hands-on skills for equine health care and stable management.

Contact Us

Drop us a line with your question or comment and we’ll do our best to respond quickly. Like you, we have horses and students and dogs and cats and families to manage, but we check email several times a day so you should hear from us within 24 hours.

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?!
