Spend your summer days surrounded by…horses, horses and more horses. If you love horses then this is the place to be! We will have equine experts teach us about horse care, anatomy and trail blazing. We will muck the stalls, groom the horses and go on a trail ride. Have you ever wondered what the horses are thinking as they stand out in the field all day? Do they get angry when we get on their backs for a ride? Do they have a BFF? Maybe we could give them a bath, but how would they get into a bath tub or shower? Do they use special horse soap/shampoo? Be on the lookout for a service project to do to show our love and compassion for our four-legged friends. Oh, we are going to have so much fun, you won’t want to miss the chance to “Giddy Up and Go” with Girl Scouts!!
