How can we help?
Tap a question to look for answers:
You can filter the list for a specific Levels curriculum, Learning Level, resource type, or topic. Or you can just browse through the list to see what's there.
Each link takes you to a download page with information about that resource. You'll find detailed information on the download page, including tips for using that resource in lessons. Most download pages also have helpful links to related resources — we're still going back and adding these to stuff we published a few years ago!
NOTE: If you signed up for an LLPro membership, every resource here is included in your membership.
Non-printable resources like Learning Levels ribbons (and, eventually, some fun hands-on teaching tools) are also available to purchase in the Shop.
Browse through the Resource Center pages to learn more about the types of resources you can use to teach lessons.
We did keep the helpful information about teaching each Level: look for that updated information on the About Each Learning Level pages.
You'll also find helpful insights in the Boss Mares Blog Archives, which has many free blog posts along with the members-only articles.
You and your students can join our free online Quizlet Classroom, which has sets of games for each Level.
And the Learning Levels curriculum has been free to download since 2007!
Occasionally we get enthusiastic and add a bunch of new files at once, especially if someone has requested a particular resource!
Our priority is to finish the core resources (especially those study guides and lesson plans) for the original curriculum first, then add more teaching materials for the new HorseCentered and Western Horsemanship curriculums.
You can see what we're planning to revise on the Upcoming Resources in the Pipeline page.
Meanwhile, you'll find tips for adapting resources for Western lessons in the Customizing Resource Files section.
If your device displays PDF files easily, however, and you don't need to print the file, you could indeed just use the file online.... although you may want to check your device's data plan first!
On download pages for all free resources that don't require a membership, you'll see a download button. On members-only LLPro download pages, you'll see either a download button or a button to sign in so the download button can be shown.
The resource file will open in your browser. Depending on your browser's settings, you'll see a download icon or a link to save the file to your device.
If you're not yet an LLPro member, and wish to have access to that file, we'd love to have you Join Us!
We do have several large files that may not be appropriate for downloading on your phone unless you have ample storage space on your device. In particular, the file sizes are quite large (5MB or more) for study guides, lesson plans, the Collective Equestrian certificates, and a few bundled .ZIP files.
You can find the file size for every resource at the bottom of the download page.
Your device will need a file archive app (WinZip, etc.) to unzip those files. You can find suggested apps and learn more about .ZIP files on our Help with Download Files page.
However, if you have a compelling reason why you need to download hundreds of files at once, and your device can handle downloads of 500MB or more, contact us to discuss options.
PRINTING AND SHARING FILES
Most pages will have a minimum left and right margin of 0.5", and a minimum bottom margin of 0.65". Some resources (e.g., study guides) are formatted for use in binders, so those pages are formatted for 2-sided printing, with 0.75″ inside margins sufficient for 3-hole punching. The margins of PDF files can be slightly adjusted by your printer settings, so if margins don't look correct, adjust your printer's "shrink to fit" option.
Almost all of our resources are designed for full-color desktop printers. Yes, we know only too well how much colored ink costs these days — but we firmly believe that it's worth the investment if brightly-colored pages will get students to read and remember the material. There are well-established scientific reasons that all professional teaching materials are colorful!
If you're desktop printing study guides, you can find helpful printing information on the About Study Guides page.
You'll also find a page of Print Tips included in some resource download files (e.g., Stuff Happens cards, Level Up flashcards and question cards.)
For all files, we suggest doing an initial "test print" with only one or two pages.
And for students who find reading difficult, providing PDF files that can be used with screen readers or accessability options could make all the difference.
Feel free to share files with your assistant instructors, too. We want to help all of you teach from the same page.
However, please gently remind both students and instructors that those materials are for use in your program, and cannot be shared with anyone else without violating our copyright. See the copyright information below for details.
However, reselling of any Learning Levels materials to anyone outside of your instruction program is prohibited. Please see the copyright information below for details.
