How will the scouts spend their time at TES?
Scouts gather at the patio tables outside of the TES office. We will double check that parents have signed a release form for each scout, before fitting them with riding boots. 
After a safety orientation, the troop will be divided into two groups. One group will head to the barn for a hands-on lesson in horse care including feeding, grooming and equipment. The second group will be fitted for helmets, then walked to the arena for a riding lesson. The scouts switch activities after about fifty minutes. 
Topics are custom tailored to meet the Girl Scout or Boy Scout badge requirements.
What should scouts bring?

1. Breeches or Jeans

     Tight fitting pants are best as loose fabric may chafe.

3. Sunscreen

4. Carrots (for the horses)

5. Riding Boots (optional)

     or cowboy boots.
