Scouts and Scout Leaders...Create your own badge at Waredaca!! And have fun with horses doing it!

Create your own horseback riding experience for any level scout centering around horses and horseback riding and make it happen at Waredaca!  Here are some ideas from years past that worked and were popular.  Perhaps use these 'older'  ideas and develop a more current description for one or the entire troop!  

As you look over the requirements to earn your badge, there are some that you can explore and find the answers to from general sources as well as those that require professional knowledge that the staff at Waredaca can expertly provide. 

Our most popular suggestion:  a mounted trail ride follows receiving a very basic demonstration of mounting, correct positioning, explanation of stopping and turning. Then our staff will assist you to mount, adjust stirrups, and then proceed on a pleasant 30-40 minute trailride thru the pastures of our farm.

LIMIT SIZE: 10 may ride at one time;
FEE: $35 each scout for a one hour session
TIME:   This program is typically scheduled on Saturday afternoons spring and fall.  Please contact our Lesson Manager Gayle to reserve your date; she can be reached at 443 564 1276 or Lessons@waredaca.com. Schedule your troop to take part in this great horseback riding opportunity today.  Adults may also pay to ride if space allows.

Enjoy a short orientation on safety followed by a barn tour and opportunity to watch a horse being groomed and saddled.   Learn colors, parts of the horse and how to safely feed a horse treat!  A non riding educational opportunity about horses!
