What Scouters are saying about horse rides at

Butte Creek Scout Ranch

I wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone working (volunteering!) at the horse ranch this morning. We had a wonderful time and I am truly grateful for all the accommodations for my son James. Scouting at its best. And during a pandemic!

Brian, Brennen and especially Ken-who literally went the extra mile, probably more, walking alongside and constantly adjusting stirrups-were phenomenal in ensuring we had a positive experience. They were patient and encouraging and their willingness to step up, to make it work-to do hot, sweaty, unexpected work-did not go unnoticed. True gentlemen. I can’t thank them enough. 

I’m sure this put extra work on the remaining wranglers with the rest of the group too. Kyza thoroughly enjoyed herself with them so all around it was a successful adventure for us. My appreciation goes out to you all!  Great job Butte Creek!
