Scout Riding Lesson Package

6 lessons

1.5 hours long

5-8 scouts together

$200.00 per scout

Some Badge requirements take longer than one afternoon to fulfill. To meet these requirements we suggest getting your group together for a 6 session riding package. Scouts will have to learn a number of skills while riding. Including how to walk, trot, execute a posting trot, ride through an obstacle course, be able to groom and saddle your own horse, and have basic ground skills.

To book a Girl Scout Riding Lesson Package you need 5-8 participants that can attend for 6 weeks. During our Scout Riding sessions each class will include a riding lesson and an educational topic about horses. Classes must be scheduled in advance and 1 or more troops may combine members to meet the 5-8 participants level.

Our regular price for riding lessons is listed on our Lesson Pricing page. If you don’t t have enough Scouts to do a Scout Package you can call and sign up anytime for our regular riding lesson packages. Our Girl Scout Package will give you a discount and be specific to the things you need to learn for your Scout Riding Badge.
