Teaching Guide – Red HorseSense – All Cleaned Up

Learning Levels Downloads

Helpful information about this resource:

Use this teaching guide for unmounted HorseSense lessons that introduce grooming skills, with an emphasis on the horse’s comfort.

A fundamental skill for riding students, grooming is also a good way for beginners to become comfortable working around a horse on the ground.

While Red Level students should be familiar with the contents of a standard grooming kit, the goal of this objective is not to turn horses out to gleaming, show-quality standards. A simple currying and brushing in addition to hoof-picking will suffice, with shavings/hay and major tangles removed from the mane and tail.

These lessons go hand in hand with hoof picking practice, and offer the opportunity to start naming parts of the horse.

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.
