Girl Scouts

Since 1990, Stonehaven Farms has been the home of the Girl Scouts “Horsin’ Around” summer day camps and individual Girl Scout Troop Outings.

Each summer, girls from the Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio area have learned how to properly lead, groom, tack, mount and ride our horses and ponies. Hands-on instruction and discussion also includes basic parts of the horse and tack, information about different breeds, feeding, health care, shoeing and equestrian careers … all required for earning badges for all levels of scouting. Riding and instruction will be tailored to the age level of each scout and/or scout troop. With the help of our highly skilled trainers and counselors, even the most timid rider has been successful in bonding with our equine friends.

We have also hosted many troops who have chosen to use their “cookie” money and attend a Troop Outing. We are able to accomodate Troop Outings any time during the year during the week after school or on weekends. We look forward to working with your scouts to form a program just right for you.

One of our troops even “Bridged” to the next scout level on horseback!
