Horsemanship Merit Badge
This is a Troop 75 video that was from January of 2009.
It seems like a long time ago, but it may seem like yesterday for some.
See if you can spot some scouts you know.
Perhaps this will inspire some of our current or new scouts to pursue the Horsemanship Merit Badge.
The caption went as follows:
The boys had a great time at Koko Crater Equestrian and Stable Center. Mahalo to Mr. Pete and the girls (ahem) who helped train the boys in the finer points of horsemanship. Mahalos also to Mrs. Nakatsuka, Mrs. Cegler, Mrs. Oshita, Mrs. Burruso, Mrs. Murray, Mr. Higa and Mr. Yamamoto for chauffeuring the boys between Pearl City and Koko Head.

A few paniolos from our troop signed up for the horsemanship merit badge activity. They learned grooming, the names of the parts of the horse and equipment, and of course, how to ride. Saddle up!
BTW, that's me on guitar again playing to a couple backing tracks. Shameless plug. Heh.
