REVISED FOR 2020!
The fourth Learning Levels Horsemanship guide for mounted equine instruction.
The Blue Horsemanship Level encourages students to ride on the flat with attention to detail and an awareness of the horse’s balance, while giving them the skills necessary to safely trail ride, jump, and ride over introductory cross-country fences.
The Blue Level Horsemanship Study Guide covers riding with accuracy on the flat at the walk, trot, and canter, with correct diagonals, leads, and transitions, with and without stirrups. It introduces exercises for improving the seat; riding the Intro C dressage test; aids for achieving correct bend; simple gymnastic grids up to 2’; related distances; strategic riding over elementary jump courses; riding in the open over hills and natural obstacles, and effective emergency stops at the canter.
