Progress Booklet – Rainbow – Western

Learning Levels Downloads

Helpful information about this resource:

Handy little tool for keeping track of each Rainbow Level student’s Western horsemanship progress.

This printable booklet contains checklists of simple learning objectives for your youngest riders, typically aged 4-7. 

Use it to record the knowledge and skills they gain in lessons covering both mounted Western horsemanship and an unmounted introduction to horses.

We check off each objective when the student has demonstrated sufficient knowledge and skills for that objective. This makes it easy for parents – or other instructors – to understand what students are learning at each Level.

A page of printing instructions is included.

Pro-Tip: We keep the official booklets for each student in our office, and only give copies to those students who request it – because you can plan on them losing their copies!


This PDF file is formatted for full color two-sided landscape desktop printing on 8.5 x 11” paper or light card stock.

Make sure your printer software is set for “landscape” page orientation – and not set to “shrink to fit”!

Use duplex printing (on both sides of the paper) and fold pages to form an 8-page booklet. We also add two staples close to the folded edge.

For best results, we suggest using 24-lb bright white paper stock. Thinner copy paper may not work well for two-sided printing.

Pro Tip: Make your life easier by printing a BUNCH of these at a time!

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.
