Horse Session Record Workbook

The session is a record of your successes and learning opportunities.

The Session Record captures the essence of the training session in a highly structured format. It captures 400 sessions and references to training plans kept elsewhere.

The book also includes a guide to suggested codes for some of the fields. This form has been tested on 100’s of animals and we found that it captures the essence of the training session quite accurately and memorably.

You can create and print out your own form with the list of fields provided below, but we’ve done the work of pulling it together in a convenient spiral-bound book that is easy to keep organized. Better than the loose boxes of filled-in forms I have piled in the corner of my office!!!
