Merit Badge

Troop 985 worked on the horsemanship merit badge, by going to Monteverde Ranch in Tujunga where the staff worked with the Scouts on knowledge of the horse, saddle, and bridle. Each boy demonstrated how to mount, dismount, and safely maneuver the horse. This was the first time any of the Scouts had ridden a horse truly making this an unforgettable experience.
