Orange Level HorseSense students begin to look at the big picture of equine management, learning to think like a horse and consider the long-term effects of feeding, training and health care practices.

The Orange Horsemanship Level is designed to give students the ability to ride with balance and accuracy on the flat and over fences. This Level asks students to perform simple flatwork and gymnastic exercises with and without stirrups, while developing a rhythmic canter over fences.

ORANGE LEVEL HORSEMANSHIP OBJECTIVES

THE MOUNTED CURRICULUM

(scroll down to see the unmounted curriculum)

Overview of Orange Horsemanship:  The Orange Horsemanship Level is an intermediate level, designed to give students the ability to ride with balance and accuracy on the flat and over fences.

This Level asks students to perform simple flatwork and gymnastic exercises with and without stirrups, while developing a rhythmic canter over fences. Our goal for Orange Level students is for them to achieve enough competency to safely participate in mounted activities outside of lessons, while encouraging their appreciation for flatwork and equitation  as well as consideration for their horse.

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?!
