Horsemanship Merit Badge 1 of 2 @ Prairie Star Middle School

Horsemanship Merit Badge 1 of 2 @ Prairie Star Middle School | Leawood | Kansas | United States

This is the first Session of the Horsemanship Merit Badge and will be a classroom session only. Jeff Muchow, the Troop 10 Horsemanship merit badge counselor, will teach the classroom session.

This merit badge will be completed during the Landahl Park Campout on March 28, 2015. Misty River Equestrian Center is a 12 minute drive from Landahl Park.

While the classroom portion of the merit badge is free, the grooming and riding portion of the merit badge does have a $35 fee. What’s more, there is limited space at Misty River Equestrian Center. We can have up to 15 scouts Saturday morning and 15 scouts Saturday afternoon. Should there be enough interest, we can have a Sunday morning session with up to 15 as well.

The Saturday AM session is from 8 AM – 11:30 AM. The Saturday PM session is from 1 PM – 4:30 PM. If there is a Sunday AM session, it will be from 8 AM – 11:30 AM.

For the riding session at Misty River, the following items must be worn:
– long pants
– shoes or boots with a heel (a few loaners are available)
– weather-appropriate clothing/jackets/hats/gloves
– if gloves are worn, they must have a leather palm
– a helment – provided by Misty River
