90 Minute Groom and Ride: All participants first learn to groom the horses they will ride and then ride two horses, one on
the rail at the walk and the other on the longe line, trotting. This is a mini riding lesson. The time is divided up equally between the participants.
Junior /Cadette Badges: For smaller groups of 10 or less, the three sessions consisting of 2 groundwork lessons and 1 riding session is sufficient. For groups of 10 or over, the four sessions are recommended in order for them to all get enough time in the saddle to satisfy the badge requirements. This class will consist of 2 groundwork lessons and 2 riding sessions. Two horses will be used, one for the walking and the other for the trotting. The scouts will ride both horses. The time will be divided equally between them.
The riding skills and materials that they learn (in booklet form for them to keep) will satisfy both of the badge requirements offered by the Boy/Girl Scouts.
