Orange Level
HorseSense

Orange Level 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.

With the help of this guide and some hands-on instruction, students will expand their knowledge of equine behavior; learn to make conditioning plans for their horses’ activities and their own fitness; practice safe and efficient longeing; understand related distances and correctly set poles and fences for gridwork and gymnastic exercises; determine the appropriate body clip for their horses; deepen their knowledge of equine digestion and feeding requirements; wrap a hoof; incorporate dental care and immunizations into their horse care routines; and evaluate a horse’s conformation with consideration of breed types.

LEVELS TOPICS include bandaging, breeds and breed types, conditioning, conformation, dental care, equine behavior, feeding and nutrition, grooming, ground handling, hoof care, jumping skills, vet and health care.

The knowledge gained in this Level allows students to make sound decisions designed to keep their horses healthy and happy.

Orange Level
Horsemanship

Orange Horsemanship 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 flatwork exercises, with and without stirrups, maintaining light contact with an awareness of bend and balance; to develop a rhythmic canter over fences, through gymnastic grids up to 2’6″ and jump courses up to 2′ with smooth turns, good approaches, and correct leads;  to ride with control in the open at a walk, trot, and canter and over cross-country obstacles up to 2’3″; and to confidently ride the hand-gallop.

LEVELS TOPICS include flatwork skills, gaits and movement, jumping skills, cross-country, and mounted safety.

Orange Level students can safely participate in mounted activities outside of lessons, while developing an appreciation for flatwork and equitation as well as consideration for the horse.

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.
