The fifth Learning Levels HorseSense guide for unmounted equine instruction.

Orange Level students begin to look at the big picture of equine management, learning to think like a horse and consider the long-term effects of feeding, training and health care practices.

With the help of this guide and some hands-on instruction, students will expand their knowledge of equine behavior; learn to make conditioning plans for their horses’ activities and their own fitness; practice safe and efficient longeing; understand related distances and correctly set poles and fences for gridwork and gymnastic exercises; determine the appropriate body clip for their horses; deepen their knowledge of equine digestion and feeding requirements; wrap a hoof; incorporate dental care and immunizations into their horse care routines; and evaluate a horse’s conformation with consideration of breed types.

The knowledge gained in this Level allows you to make sound decisions designed to keep your horse healthy and happy.

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 have been blessed with many talented photographers over the years: students who voluntarily stood out in a sweltering/ freezing arena – or slogged up and down our hilly pastures – capturing lifelong memories of camps, clinics, and shows. We’re grateful to all of them!

One such student, Delaney Witbrod, is now a professional photographer with a gift for animal portraits – see more of her fine work here.

You’ll also find illustrations throughout our online courses and printed materials (like study guides) graciously donated by Rhonda Hagy, who is a student and lifelong friend. Contact us for information about her work.

Are we lucky or WHAT?!
