Horsemanship Badge

coming again soon...

Our Horsemanship Badge is earned in a two-hour lesson.  The first hour is focused on learning about the basics of a horse’s body parts, learning each piece of tack used in horseback riding and explaining its usage, learning how to tack, and how to saddle a horse.
Scouts will also learn about a horse’s daily routine, First Aid, and how to properly care for a horse which includes showing the Scouts how to properly “muck” a horse or pony pen and stall and discussing basic nutrition.
The second hour consists of each Scout being assigned to a horse.  The Scouts learn to mount their horse, how to steer, stop, balance, and then un-tack their horses.

This lesson will equip the Scouts with a complete basic introduction to horsemanship and the horse world.
The cost to earn this 2-hour badge is $40.00 per rider. Minimum age is 7 and minimum group size is 4 scouts.
