Introduction to Horses: 8/4-8/5 at Trefoil Ranch (Entering Grades K-8, Adults)
Description
Riding a horse is one of the most exciting things you can do! But ask any good horseback rider her secret to success and she’ll say that understanding a horse is as important as learning to ride one. During this overnight session, get clued in to horses by learning about how to care for horses, what equipment you need, rider lingo and more before grooming, helping tack your horse, and going on a ride. Girls and adults will ride in the arena for 1-hour and have a 1-hour horse care lesson. Time spent away from the stables will be spent enjoying a campfire program, interviewing a Girl Scout camp horse expert, creating a horse themed craft, and making a treat to give the horses!

Each person attending must register individually for this program. Girls are required to attend with an adult family member from their household.
