We may have missed seeing everyone at the meeting this weekend, but that didn’t stop the excitement from happening at Firelight Arabians this weekend. Firelight hosted an educational, meet the Arabian kinda day for the girl scouts! Around 30 kids and more than a dozen adults attended the event planned especially for them.
They enjoyed a conformation talk and a riding demo, then broke into 3 groups and rotated through stations on how to groom, how to be around a horse, a prop...er saddling ,feeding, caring for you horse, stall maintenance, nutrition, and more!!
After lunch, they held a coloring contest, for the 3 age groups, complete with Breyer prizes. Then three horses were saddled, and all the girls got to ride!! Most had never been on a horse, and there were the biggest smiles upon their faces! So much good feedback, the horses were amazing, and the kids thought they were so beautiful! The Girl Scouts learned a lot and went home with a bag full of AHA stuff, Arabian Life Magazines, and lots of other goodies!
Thanks to our BAHA members that took time to share with the Girl Scouts. You are all absolutely amazing and your dedication doesn’t go unnoticed!! McCartney Swears, Tabby Taylor, Grace Garr, Heather Swears, Julian McPeak, Brinley Swears, Holly Kratzenberg, Carisa Eliese Patterson, Samantha Taylor, and of course, Lorie Henderson...you all set the bar high for others when it comes to breed promotion!
And of course none of it would have been possible without their talented horses, Augustara Bey+++/, Just Breezin By+++/, Xanadus Whimsical++, Patriot V++++/, & Yosemitee which are all trained by Firelight Arabians.
