A Collection

by Cynthia Linsenbardt and Contributors

Hard Copy ~ Spiral Bound

264 pages ~ 250+ activities!

Whether you are a new instructor who needs to build up your pocket full of tricks, or an experienced instructor looking for new lesson activities, this book will provide ideas for years to come!


… a collection of all the best activities and games articles from the blog, since its start in 2012 through March of 2017! 109 posts total. Most include illustrations, and many have lesson plans. Printed in black and white. (Note: this book is JUST activities! It does not include information about how to get certified, lesson plan, or instruct specific disabilities – those are for future books!)

a *NEW* article on warmups, found only in this book! This section combines all the warmup posts on the blog, plus some new ideas, categorized by body area (head, arms, hips, etc.), and complete with descriptions and benefits.

everything organized in the order of a lesson plan! As opposed to chronologically, this makes finding what you need for lesson planning much easier! See the images below for the detailed table of contents.

…contents that include:

Skills List
Drill Team
Obstacle & Trail Courses
Activities & Games
Seasonal Activities
Cool Downs
Unmounted Activities


A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the EQUUS Foundation scholarships for therapeutic horseback riding certification ($4 per book). Instead of paying each contributor, I’m paying it forward!

An Ebook is currently not available – since all but one of these articles are available on the blog, it seemed redundant. But if enough interested is expressed, it might happen…LMK if you’re interested!
