HERE ARE SOME GAMES TO PRINT AND CUT OUT
HORZEE (Yahtzee) download the card and print off enough to play with friends. As for the dice, you will need to make some. You may be able to get some wooden or plastic blocks from a craft or dollar, or draw over some old ones with your parents permission, of course!
HORSE BINGO download and print off the playing cards as well as the pieces to call out. You will have to do some cutting!
CRAZY HORSES download and print off the deck of cards. You will have to do some cutting. The game is similar to Crazy Eights and Uno. Object of the game is to get out of cards first. Deal 5 cards each. Follow the background color until it is changed, and every horse does something different.
Appaloosa's spots make you dizzy, you have to turn around, reverse game play.
Arabians come in many colors - play changes to person's choice of color.
Clydesdales are meant to carry a heavy load, next player has to pick up a card, unless they have a veto of the matching color scheme playing.
Lipizzaners are the epitome of horses, consider them a wild card - pick a color.
Morgans are such great, versatile horse. Here they have the power to veto any bad card played prior to one's turn, such as pick up, or miss a turn, or switch direction.
Paint horses are known for their color. Here they have the ability to go on any color without changing the color scheme being played. For example, if it's 'yellow' and you have a paint with a blue background, you may play the paint!
Palominos are such a pretty, golden color, here they can go on yellow, regardless of the color of the background. For example, if the scheme is yellow, and you have a blue Palomino card, you may change it! But it changes the scheme to the color of your card (here it would have been blue).
Przewalski horses are a mysterious breed that developed through evolution, hardly changing today. In the game, they are a mystery. Suggestions?
Quarter horses are commonly used for roping. If you play it, you must rope and take the card before it!
Shetland ponies are mischievous causing the next player to miss a turn, unless they have a veto that matches the color scheme playing.
Shires are the biggest work horses of all. Next player needs to pick up 2 cards, unless of course, they have a veto of the matching color scheme playing.
Thoroughbreds are very fast race horses. If you play one, you can go again! Or two or three!
Tennessee Walkers have a substantial gait. Here they will stomp out the next two players, as they will miss they turns.
But not done yet, if a player gets down to their very last card, they must say, "Last horse!" or they will get an extra card if someone notices.
Also, if a player cannot place a card on the pile, he or she must draw from the deck one card. If they still cannot go, then say, "Hold my horses."
I warn you this game gets a little crazy!
TRICK OR TREAT download and print off the game board, cards, and the horse bones. You will need to cut the bone pictures up into about 5 pieces. The goal of the game is to collect all the bones to make a complete horse skeleton. This game is perfect for learning the bones, as well as celebrating Halloween, as you will notice the earn treat cards!
You earn bones either by landing on the square with the bone, or drawing a free bone card.
Bone = you get a bone
Candy Corn = you get a treat (great way to earn little treats after going trick or treating! Don't overdo it though.
Spider Web = lose a turn
Bat Wings = advance to the next square the wing touches
Jack-o-lantern = draw a card and follow it's words
Eyes = keep your eyes open!
Ghost = Boo! you got so scared you had to go back one square, and follow that square's picture
Werewolf = steals one of your bones!
For those who like trivia games, Barnboozle is for you! Instructions included in download. It is a lot of printing, cutting and organizing, but it is so much fun! Here is the game board and pieces. For now you will have to come up with your own trivia questions. The trivia questions will be here soon, but are under construction!
VIDEO TUTORIALS TO HELP OUT YOUNG RIDERS
A special thank you to Camp Little Trotter for allowing us to use your videos.
Good job kids!
What to do after grade 10?
We strongly suggest Rider Levels I, II, III, and IV. Once you are done those, you can go for Sport Therapy, Equitation Medal, High Performance, Horse Training and/or Coaching.
Why is there no grade 11?
Because high school students are pretty focused on their classes to get into university. For the ones who really want to continue, we suggest the rider levels.
