Teaching Guide – Red HorseSense – Horse Safety

Learning Levels Downloads

Helpful information about this resource:

Use this teaching guide for beginner unmounted HorseSense lessons to teach the safety rules for barn, arena, and pasture.

These are the skills that every Red Level student must practice from the moment they first set foot in the barn — rules that you must enforce in order to make safety-consciousness the cornerstone of your program.

But memorizing rules isn’t enough: students need to understand the rationale behind each barn rule, so that they start developing the critically important ability to think like a horse

We expect our students to be able to discuss these basic rules well enough that they could safely introduce a friend or family member to the barn.

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.
