American Legacy Complex will help you learn the skills necessary to complete your horse patch.
Daisies will have the opportunity to tour the barn, meet the stabled horses, groom a horse, learn how to stay safe around a horse, look at various sizes of horse shoes, see and touch horse teeth, and take a ride on two different horses.
Brownies and Juniors
Your troop will have the opportunity to learn basic horse safety, parts of the horse, horse markings, parts of the saddle and bridle (English & Western), how to groom a horse, and how to ride a horse.
Girls may complete some requirements of the Brownie Badge-Pets and the Junior Badge-Animal Habitats.
Cadettes, Seniors & Ambassadors
Your troop will cover some of the same material as the Brownies and Juniors only in greater depth. Topics covered include but are not limited to: grooming, leading, bridling, saddling, riding & breeds; basic safety rules; feeding and care of a horse; common diseases; and cost of owning a horse – home care and stable care prices. You will have an opportunity to ride.
Girls may complete some requirements of the Cadette Badge-Animal Helpers and the Senior Badge- Voice for Animals.
