Daisy Girl Scouts at Pretty Pony Pastures

Daisy Scouts

 

We offer two 2-hour programs for Daisy Scouts. Fun with Horses and Horse Ready. Our "horses" are pony size and, in accordance with Safety-wise, every rider will be led by a trained volunteer.

Since there are no petals for horseback riding, we designed our own sessions. Each Daisy will have a hands-on experience grooming, riding, learning the parts of the horse, and making a treat for the horses. The girls will receive a fun patch.

 

 

Fun with Horses

  • Safety first
