Riding a horse is one of the most exciting things you can do. But ask any good horseback rider her secret to success and she’ll say that understanding a horse is as important as learning to ride one. During this fabulous weekend, members of our Wrangler/Spur program will share with you the basics of horseback riding, teach you how to take care of a horse and learn about horse safety, prepare you for your ride, practice your ride, and take you out on a trail ride, if weather permits! Girl Scout Juniors that complete all activities and skills from the event will earn the Horseback Riding badge.
