Red Level HorseSense Study Guide - PDF
The first unmounted HorseSense guide for beginning English riders and horsey caretakers, typically aged 8 and up, is ALL about safety for horses and humans. REVISED for 2020!
The Red HorseSense guide helps beginner students learn equine behavior and safety in the barn, pasture, and arena. It introduces basic horse care topics, including grooming, hoof care, stall cleaning, and rules for safe feeding. It also teaches terminology for basic equine anatomy and parts of English and Western tack.
PRO TIP: This guide can be used to help prepare students for lessons by explaining key concepts and emphasizing the importance of safety — or it can be used as a “textbook” for an unmounted horse care class.

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?!
