For my riding instructor's class I have to give several different types of lessons. I'll probably be looking to you all for suggestions and opinions several times this semester. These lessons have to have submitted lesson plans, pics and a write up about how the lesson went. One of the required lessons is an unmounted lesson. I'm using my 6 yo cousin because she has a ton of horsey interest but her parents aren't so thrilled by the idea of her riding. Because she has no horsey knowledge what so ever, I'm going to start out with colors of horses. I want to go beyond the very basic because I want her to learn something new, but I don't want to overwhelm her. So, in your opinion, how far is too far for a 6 yo? I'm also going to cover facial and leg markings. Also, after I go over these, I want to play games to help her practice and remember what the colors are. I'm playing around with doing some sort of matching game, but I'm not completely sold on it or how to do it. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks everyone, and I'll let you know how it goes.
