During scout sessions they will learn grooming, saddling, and riding. The session starts by watching a short helmet safety video, followed by a helmet fitting, and then to the hitching rail to learn some safety around the horses before getting started with the horse interaction. These sessions are available year-round on Saturdays in two separate sessions, 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Those riding must wear long pants and shoes with a heel of at least a 1/2 inch. Helmets must be worn, and are provided by the facility. Boy Scout sessions are a half hour longer than stated above.
