Local business Eqwise Equestrian Centre enables hands-on experience enabling Young People from Brindle St. Josephs to learn #SkillsForLife
Beavers (6-8) and Cubs (8-10.5) from Brindle St.Joseph’s Scout group recently ticked off or completed new activity badges (Animal Friend and Equestrian Badge) thanks to the brilliant staff at Eqwise Equestrian Centre, Chorley across a number of evenings.
During the sessions, young people learned a whole host of new skills from, mounting and dismounting a horse, trotting, grooming, looking after the wellbeing of animals, and stable management during their hands on and fun sessions.
Stacy Valentine, the groups Lead Volunteer, said:
“A huge thanks to go to the team at Eqwise Equestrian Centre, they were fantastic with the young people, enabling them to learn new skills and work with the animals. The beavers were able to work towards the Animal Friend Activity Badge while our cubs achieved their Equestrian badge. Scouts It’s all about opportunities for young people to take the lead and make a difference.”
Volunteering at Scouts isn’t just about changing young people’s lives. It’s about doing something that’s #GoodForYou too. Good for your health and happiness, good for developing skills, and good for making friends.
