Yellow Level Horsemanship Study Guide - PDF
The second Learning Levels Horsemanship guide for mounted equine instruction. REVISED FOR 2020!
Students practice emergency skills; work towards balanced walk-trot transitions and a steady trot through ring figures; learn posting diagonals and sitting trot; put flatwork skills to use in the Intro A dressage test; strengthen their jumping position over ground poles in a grid and over a simple course.
The Yellow Level study guide prepares students for lessons by explaining key concepts and emphasizing the importance of a strong foundation before cantering and jumping.

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?!
