We have two programs with our Girl Scout badge. We offer the 4 Hour Junior Horse Badge Program that allows the girls to earn their GSUSA Outdoor Horse Badge. That covers grooming the horse, ground work with the horse, basic health understanding of the horses, the different types of saddles and bridles for horses, while then learning how to tack up the horse. We will then give the girls a ride on the horses. They will ride in an English and Western Saddle to allow them to feel the difference. After riding they will untack and brush the horses and usually able to feed them a bran mash. Most groups end up doing a lunch or snack break at some point during the program as well. The cost for this is $45 per Girl Scout.
We also offer a shorter 2 hour program for $25 for the younger girls as some troops will bring sisters and friends.
At the end of either program the girls will receive our Barn Life Fun Patch as well.
