Girl Scouts To Earn Horse Fan Badge At Colorado Classic Horse Show


Nearly 300 Junior Girl Scouts, ages 8-11, will attend the 30th annual Colorado Classic Horse Show on Saturday, April 22, 2006 to learn about horse care and showing horses to earn their Horse Fan Badge. Girls of all ages who are interested in joining Girl Scouts may register and attend the event; family and friends are welcome to attend the horse show free of charge.


The show is being held April 20-23 at the National Western Events Center, 4655 Humboldt Street, Denver.


Girls will watch the horse show to learn about the Morgan, Saddlebred and Arabian breeds while completing activities in a custom-designed horse workbook that they can take home after the event. Girls can also win horse-related prizes, including free riding lessons, in a special raffle drawing. After the show, participants will make their way through educational displays including: horse behavior, tack and equipment, grooming, clothing and dress, horse-related ballads and songs, horse shoeing and barn tours. The equine veterinary students at Colorado State University will teach the girls about horse health and dietary needs.

For more information contact Alice Hughes, Girl Scouts volunteer, at (303)360-0362(home) or e-mail or the Mile Hi Council at 303) 778-8774 or
