Client and Equine Services

SCOUTS (including Brownies, Daises and Cub Scouts) earn a horse lovers patch at Rockin’ L&D Ranch. We will provide your Leader with a package of equine information. At the Ranch you will meet the horses and other ranch animals plus learn how to groom and saddle a horse.  All Scouts will learn to ride using their balance line and natural aides. They will also learn barrel vaulting exercises or roping. We provide riding boots and equestrian helmets. This fun and informative two hour clinic is $40.00 per Scout. Staffing is one Wrangler per horse.  Please schedule at least one month in advance so that we may staff accordingly.
