Green Level Horsemanship Study Guide - PDF
The third Learning Levels Horsemanship guide for mounted equine instruction. REVISED FOR 2020!
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. 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.
The Green Level study guide prepares students for lessons with detailed explanations of key concepts and safety considerations for both horse and rider.

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.
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?!
