Horseback Riding

girl on horseback

There are many approved horseback riding facilities within our council jurisdiction who welcome Girl Scouts for lessons, trail rides, and badge work. Approved facilities have been inspected by the council within the past five years, carry appropriate business insurance, and meet all Girl Scout safety standards. Girl Scouts may not participate in any horse-related activities or horseback riding programs at non-approved facilities! Please check with the site you are interested in visiting about available services, pricing, and details as these all vary greatly depending on the facility. Please note that some of the approved facilities DO NOT have a person on staff that is currently certified in First Aid/CPR. When this is the case, a troop must provide its own adult first aider.

If you or someone you know operates a horseback riding facility and would like to become an approved program site for Girl Scouts, please email Christina Thomas or call her at 607-382-9418 to schedule a site visit and discuss options. Outside riding facilities must provide the council with a current certificate of liability insurance (Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways named as additionally insured is suggested). Please also reference Christina Thomas for any horse-related activity questions or concerns.
