August 22, 2014 - August 24, 2014 7:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Wrangler/Spur Training Weekends Open to girls, age 14 and older (Wranglers), and girls, age 12 – 13 (Spurs). These Training weekends are for girls hold a “CURRENT” status in the Wrangler/Spur Program. “Current” members are those who have volunteered at least twice a semester and have attended two previous trainings per year. If you are not sure if you are current, please contact Angela Arneal.
The trainings are held at Camp Marydale and are designed to improve your basic horsemanship and riding skills, and give you a chance to get to know the other girls in the program. You will also have an opportunity to meet with horse care professionals and professional trainers. All new Wranglers are required to attend a Wrangler/Spur Orientation (see above) before they attend a training weekend or before they can volunteer to work any other weekend. Training Weekends are also the time to test to move up to a higher level.
*Spurs will shadow Wrangler members until they are 14, and then will be eligible to advance to the Wrangler level. It is not a requirement to be a Spur before joining the Wrangler program.
