Silver Eagle Stable has devised a plan that allows your Boy or Girl scout to complete the Scout Horsemanship Merit Badge in only 1 day. Chris Noakes is a certified Counselor with the Boy Scouts of America and can sign off on the Horsemanship Badge requirements. (Other scouting organizations are welcome, too! We can tailor an event to suit your wants/needs.)
BSA Horsemanship Merit Badge
The Merit Badge event includes classroom time learning all about horses. This includes barn safety, horse health issues, feeding and care, and learning about tack. Participants will then go on to stations to learn how to groom, mount/dismount, and how to tack up a horse. The next stage is actually getting on the horse and learning how to ride. The participant’s final task is showing the instructor that they have learned the required skills and are able to apply them by riding the horse under the instructor’s supervision.
All participants must wear long pants and a distinct heeled boot or shoe as well as a helmet for safety reasons. Riders may bring their own helmet or use one of ours. (Anyone with hair in any type of up-do needs to be able to put a helmet on or take their hair down.)
Want to throw in some camping for the badge or just some fun? We can accommodate your troop at the same time!
