The Wrangler/Spur Program is available to Girl Scouts ages 12 and up. Girls who start as Spurs shadow the more experienced riders, the Wranglers, to learn about riding, horsemanship and leadership. Once Spurs are 14, they are eligible to advance to the Wrangler level, but it is not a requirement to begin the Wrangler/Spur Program as a Spur. Training and riding workshops take place at Camp Marydale, the home of Girl Scouts Louisiana East’s herd of 21 horses.
