  1. I do not think she has that book, but I am not certain. I will check into it. I do have a friend that will let her be an assistant to the trainer/program manager, but not until next spring when she is a little older. Just trying to make it through!
  2. I am not looking specifically for Equine Science, and I am aware that Equine Science does not teach horse training. We have owned horses for nearly two decades and my eldest daughter is majoring in Equine Science with a specialization in Equine Husbandry at Texas A&M and also rides pro rodeo. ? For this daughter, if she is going to own horses and train horses (which she already does), she needs to have solid knowledge of horse anatomy and care. She is the first line of defense to identify and prevent injuries, to control pests, and to determine if the horse is in need of more care than we are able to administer at home. If she desires to be a trainer, she needs to be well-versed in all aspects of the horse, not simply training. Some of the other areas that you mentioned: groundwork, farrier, nutrition, stable and barn management, those can easily be part of a horse study. Some of these she has already delved into. Because of her age, there is only one local horse facility that is willing to have her on (and on very sporadically) as a barn hand. As she gets a little older, more of these opportunities will open to her. As it is, she would like a study that is already laid out. It can incorporate any aspects of the horse, not just science, not just training. I may end up pulling together my own from some of the sources mentioned. I am sure I will find other resources as I am looking at these. Thanks to everyone for your help and I am still looking if anyone has more to add.
  3. I wish we both knew. I let her interests lead this and so far it has been a combination. She is not interested in showing, but in being a trainer. What is a MOOC?
  4. My daughter has requested yet another horse related study. We have done Beautiful Feet History of the Horse, I am looking into Winter Promise Equine Science, and I am planning to purchase the Homeschool Legacy Horse Unit Student. I am hoping for something on a high school level. Thoughts? Suggestions? If we could integrate it with Sonlight's Core 100 (American History In-Depth) that would be ideal. I am also willing to write my own lesson plans if needed. Help a mama out!
  5. after FLL. This was pre-ALL (now known as Grammar for the WTM). Can someone that is more vintage help me find that? Thanks!
  6. instruction go into WWS Level 1? Especially if it is not rushed?
  7. Looking at the set of classes available for $20/month. Any input helpful.
  8. Just a note. I attempted to use the 3rd Edition Tests & Worksheets book with the 2nd Edition text because I had them from prior students. They are not compatible. The 3rd Edition has some concepts out of order from the 2nd.
  9. One of my dc is doing well in Saxon 5/4. She can do the lessons just fine, but hit a wall with the facts practice when she reached division. Should I stop and drill her on facts? She is not solid on multiplication facts and I don’t want her to get lost, however, not doing the actual lessons does not appeal to me. Thoughts and suggestions?
  10. Have you looked at the BF suggested progression schedule? Is there a reason you cannot combine the Primary and Intermediate for some of the guides? I currently have 6th, 2nd, K and Pre-K using the primary/intermediate combo for Early American and it is easily doable.
  11. I did this also. It worked great for my youngers. I need to do it now! Some of mine are now using a planner. I write the entire week down and they work however they choose. The only daily items are our group activities and Bible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. What about Progeny Press or Total Language Plus Guides? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. We love First Language Lessons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The “rule†is that if it SOUNDS like a vowel, it gets “an†even if it is an actual consonant. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. PM’d you. My 25yo dd rides pro rodeo. My 11yo dd owns a horse, provides all care, rides, takes lessons, and is in a 4H Equestrian Club. She’s thrilled to help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Seen any deals on this yet?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Well, sort of tongue-in-cheek, we bought my 6th grade dd a horse. She is a horse fanatic and had been taking lessons. The point of me telling you this is to say that now SHE has a reason to get her work done. Chores + school finished = more time outside with her horse. She can get all independent subjects completed in about two hours. Group stuff takes about an hour. She is MOTIVATED! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I don’t think struggling with a single math concept is enough reason to switch programs. Have you looked at Key to Fractions? You can also just stop with Saxon for a few days and focus on learning fractions, working with manipulatives and real-life applications like cutting and serving pizza, cooking, and measurements. Also, are you doing ALL of Saxon? Some try to skip the drill sheets, or do odd problems or evens problem only. These modifications detract from the way the program is designed. We have used and are still using Saxon. Yes, they do ALL problems the drill sheets. We don’t skip. It seems redundant some days, but the proof is in the pudding! ETA: I also have two children using MUS. I am not trying to discourage you from that. I am simply saying that switching programs sometimes causes more complications instead of helping. We use different things for different learning styles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
