HORSEMANSHIP BADGE

Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls, etc.

Bring your troop out to earn their merit badges. We will educate your troop about care, breeds, common illnesses, and of course riding. Our packages include grooming the horses, cleaning hooves, tacking up, a riding demonstration, and a trail ride. Troop leaders and parents are welcome to join in and learn as well as participate in the trail ride. 

Just let us know what requirements your specific badge has and we will be happy to fill those requirements.
