Scoutreach packs go horseback riding

Boys earn belt loop for endeavors

October was an exciting month for Scoutreach pack members. The four packs from the Comer schools each spent a day at Tally Ho Equestrian Center in Timmonsville, SC. They included:

  • Pack 542- Washington Street Elementary
  • Pack 543- Thornwell School for the Arts
  • Pack 544- West Hartsville Elementary
  • Learning for Life Group 500- Southside Early Childhood Center

The children learned many new skills that align with the Comer developmental pathways. They used the physical and cognitive pathways when receiving instructions how to ride. They used the ethical pathway as they learned several ways to care for a horse before, during and after riding. They exercised the social pathway, sharing an adventure with their friends, adult leaders and riding instructors. They also used the language and cognitive pathways, learning safety rules and hand signals to communicate with the horses. Some scouts were brave enough to ride without a lead.

Scouts that participated earned belt loops for horseback riding, presented at the November Scoutreach banquet.
