Green Level Horsemanship Study Guide – LLPro

Learning Levels Downloads

Helpful information about this resource:

Help your beginner students prepare for our third level of mounted riding lessons using the Green Level Horsemanship study guide. 

This “textbook” for Green Level introduces the canter and an awareness of leads; provides equitation exercises on the flat and the development of smooth turns and good approaches over ground pole courses; introduces jumping over an 18″ crossrail; and emphasizes the need to develop a strong, balanced position before jumping courses.

Students begin the transition from passenger to thinking rider in this level, learning to evaluate safe riding conditions for their mounts and to recognize their influence on the horse’s movement and behavior.

While the guide is written for English riding disciplines, much of the key information here is true for all students learning to canter and ride over ground poles, and could be adapted for use with our Western curriculum.

ABOUT OUR STUDY GUIDES

We use the study guides, along with our lesson plans and other educational resources, to provide detailed instructional content for mounted classes or clinics — and for our students to study at home in preparation for lessons.

We’ve also found study guides to be an invaluable asset when coordinating instruction between multiple instructors or training assistants and barn helpers.

PRINT TIPS

This PDF file is formatted for full color two-sided desktop printing on 8.5 x 11” paper, with an 0.75″ inside margin suitable for loose-leaf binders.

41 pages

4.86 MB

Make sure your printer software is not set to “shrink to fit”!

Print the cover page separately on white card stock.

To create a booklet suitable for a 3-ring binder, print the remaining pages using duplex printing (on both sides of the paper) and a hole-punch.  For best results, we suggest using 24-lb bright white paper stock. Thinner copy paper may not work well for two-sided printing.

You could also just print single pages as needed, or view the file online in your browser.

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.
