Use this printable worksheet for unmounted HorseCentered lessons that introduce equine stress signals and teach students to consider things from a horse’s perspective.

Awareness of a horse’s body language is an important first step in helping our Pink Level students develop ethical ground handling, training, and riding practices.

In addition to identifying common equine behaviors, this worksheet asks students to consider things that might cause equine discomfort and how we should respond.

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.
