2024 Horsemanship Merit Badge Skills Center

Event Details

Horsemanship Merit Badge

 *Attendance is required at the orientation and all three sessions in order to qualify for the Horsemanship merit badge. Specific requirements must be met.

Orientation: March 7, 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 pm. This will be a zoom meeting. A link will be sent out a week before the Orientation.

March 9, March 16, and March 23  8:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. - Nagel Base, Beaumont Scout Reservation

The Horsemanship Merit Badge Center provides a Scout with knowledge of how to care for, groom, and ride a horse. The Scout gains an understanding of the instincts and behaviors of horses.

Must be Scout age (11 yrs old) at the time the 2023 HMBSC starts. Recommended age is 14 or older. This program is designed for older Scouts. Venturing has different requirements. However, we will do our best for each Scout to pass the skill center.

*For safety reasons, no one can ride who is over the maximum weight limit of 230 pounds. Weight will be checked at camp. Rangers and/or trail guides have the authority to restrict any person from riding or other Horse Camp activities who may pose, in their opinion, a safety risk to themselves, others, or the horses.

Wear jeans and closed toed shoes, perferably boots.

Bring lots of water, lunch/snacks, the Horsemanship merit badge pamphlet and blue merit badge card. 

Cost: $60.00
