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.
