Scouting Program Archives: National Outdoor Badge - Riding
Horsemanship Merit Badge for Boy Scouts This is one our older scouts sometimes work on at summer camp. They usually require them to be 13 or 14 years old though, because the smaller guys have a hard time saddling the horse without assistance. There is only one part they don't like - the test about the parts of the horse and diseases.
BSA Bike Safety Guidelines BSA has a list of bike safety guidelines on the Scouting.org site. The guidelines and procedures apply to all BSA unit, council, and national program activities involving bicycling.
Bicycle Riding Log For some cycling recogintions, Scouts must record the time or distance spent riding. A basic log sheet is located at the bottom of this post to help you complete this. If you really become interested in cycling, you might consider getting a simple bike computer to aid you in figuring out this data. These devices record the time spent riding, mileage, average speed, and more.
