Here is our basic plan for your visit with us. Plan for 2-3 hours.
I. Arrival, registration, introductions, safety rules, assign riders to horses.
II. Groom and tack horses - girl scouts learn about grooming tools, saddle and bridle parts
III. Divide into groups - Alternate activities
A. Ride first; learn body parts and craft
B. Learn body parts and craft; ride second
IV. Untack horses, groom, feed carrots, return horses to stalls
V. Receive learning folders, snack, departure
We will randomly assign riders to their groups.
We do have a large number of riding helmets for use. Everyone should wear close toed shoes to the farm. Those riding would be better to have boots with a heel. We also recommend long pants.
