• Horse breeds, colors, and Uses 
• Horse Care and feeds

Horse Rider Badge
The horse rider badge stresses a “hands-on” horse experience. Our program is geared to riders with a general understanding of horses and offers the next level of training for your girl scout. This clinic includes:

• Etiquette and safety 
• Basic horsemanship

• Bits and bridles

The Girl Scout Horse Rider badge program is approximately two and a half hours long and expands on the information learned in previous lessons (horse fan program). After a thirty- minute discussion, instructors will teach and assist riders as they groom and saddle their own horses. During the session, scouts will perfect their control of their horses and refine their horse riding skills during their riding lesson.

Hideaway Horse Center is now offering a lesson group for students that are homeschooled. Lessons run in 8 week blocks and are approximately 1 1/2 hours long. They will meet at the same time each week and be with the same group of students. Students are placed in classes according to age and ability. Horseback riding lessons are very social as well as physical. They learn about coordination, giving and following directions, and mastering challenges.  Classes help build new friendships, human and equine. It is also a great way for homeschoolers to get your PE credits!
