Helpful information about this resource:

Use our new HorseCentered Levels curriculum checklist to teach unmounted lessons that deepen understanding of the horse while developing practical, hands-on training skills.

Learning why horses behave the way they do, and how to modify behavior ethically as well as effectively, can prevent frustration and suffering in both horse and handler. These Levels are designed to accommodate a variety of different groundwork approaches, with the goal of creating well-rounded trainers who can choose and use methods while prioritizing partnership and the horse’s well-being.

This free PDF download lists all of the learning objectives for Pink, White, and Gold Levels, in a handy checklist format. 

Use with our lesson plans and unmounted teaching guides* for a complete beginner educational program.

We also have 350+ proven Learning Levels teaching resources that we’ve used — for over 18 years and counting! — to teach riding and horse care in lessons, camps and clinics.

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.
