What should my Girl Scout wear/bring?
Riders will need to wear jeans or long pants, socks, and boots with a heel for riding (at least a half an inch).
Who is required to wear a helmet?
Helmets are required around horses anywhere within the Equestrian Center. Both girls and adults must wear helmets when riding. No exceptions!
Will we be indoors or outdoors?
Majority of the events are held indoors in our barn and indoor riding arena (except trail rides and unless stated otherwise). However, neither area has heating or air conditioning so please keep that in mind when choosing appropriate dress attire.
Will my Girl Scout actually ride on a horse?
All sessions (unless stated otherwise) have some time spent in the saddle. The amount of time will vary depending on the program type.
Will my session consist of only my troop members?
We try our best to accommodate requests for troop privacy; however, we are also obligated to fill all sessions so there is no guarantee that your session will be completely private unless you meet the maximum number of girls allowed per session.
Does my Girl Scout get to pick her own horse?
We assign horses based on skill level, height/weight, etc. Unfortunately, we cannot always fulfill requests for particular horses due to the fact that many girls will ask for the same horse.
In the event of inclement weather what happens?
If a program needs to be rescheduled due to inclement weather, you will be notified as soon as possible and then given information about the new date once it becomes available. The Equestrian Program Specialist has the authority to cancel a program at any time if it is too hot or too cold and deemed unsafe to ride.
