Here is something neat one of our instructors made – colored arena letters. She printed them on colored paper then laminated them. This way we can tell riders to “Go toward K” if they know their letters, or “Go toward the blue K” if they are better with colors than letters, or “Go toward the blue square” if they don’t know their letters, or anything else we can come up with that helps them! I’ve really enjoyed this helpful prop.
P.S. Call out for pictures of fake horses! I would like to do a post about fake horses you put riders on before riding or to help learn new skills. If you have a picture of one and could send it to me, that would be great – leave a comment below or use the contact form and I’ll email you back so you can send it to me! I will give credit where due, so include a name and link to your center!
