Girl Scout Clinic hosted by the Arabian Horse Club of South East Washington

It was a great day for 96 Girl Scouts who earned their merit badges by participating in Equestrian Day that was held on Saturday, October 10th at the Franklin County Saddle Club in Pasco, Washington.

Hosted by the Arabian Horse Club of South East Washington, sessions that the Girl Scouts attended in the morning included talks and demonstrations on grooming, safety, horse breeds, horse communication, horse tack and equipment, and financial aspects of owning a horse. They saw riders exhibit their horses in a variety of riding styles that included hunt seat, saddle seat, western, sidesaddle and dressage. They even saw a group of horses in a pack string do maneuvers.

During the afternoon session volunteers helped each Girl Scout lead and ride a horse. From the smiles and hugs the horses received, it was readily apparent that this was the favorite part of the day.

One girl exclaimed with joy that she was kissed by a horse!

After the clinic participants were given “goodie bags” to take home with them.

A non-profit association, the Arabian Horse Club of South East Washington (AHCSEW) is a member club of the Region 5 Arabian Horse Association that encompasses Alaska, Washington, northern Idaho, and western Montana and is an affiliate club of the Arabian Horse Association (AHA).
