Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

We provide traditional and non-traditional equine experiences for girls and the community, many of whom would not have access otherwise. Besides affordable progressive instruction, trail rides and horse-care workshops, we offer unique ways to connect through equine digital photography and art classes, horse-related STEM experiences, and vaulting. Our team-building program uses horses to foster communication, problem solving, leadership and teamwork. Our teen volunteer program builds self-esteem, job skills, volunteerism and work ethics. Responsible horse ownership is taught as well as modeled at our 42 horse facility which includes some horses retired from other careers and previously neglected horses.


Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
