Updated to incorporate Western and HorseCentered curriculums!
Use this helpful taxonomy for the Learning Levels curriculums to plan efficient mounted and unmounted lessons.
The PDF download contains a simple list of all the topics, with revised definitions to incorporate our English and Western Horsemanship, HorseSense, and HorseCentered curriculums.
These are the same topics we use to categorize resources in the Resource Center. This makes it easy to find teaching materials for a specific Learning Levels objective — like hoof care or conditioning or tack — using the Resource Center’s search form.
You’ll find a free list of all the topics and definitions on our Plan Lessons Using Topics page – but tucking this printable list in your lesson planning notebook (or saving the file to your desktop or mobile device) will make the whole process easier!
Pro-Tip: We organize our teaching resources in storage boxes labelled by Learning Levels Topic. This gives us quick access to all the materials needed to teach that particular subject, and keeps it organized.
We also use Topic boxes in our lending library, so our students have access to the materials for self-study.
