The Eagle Bend Junior Girl Scouts recently ventured to the Ann and Al Drayna home. Ann demonstrated to the girls many aspects of owning a horse. She showed the girls how to groom, saddle, mount, ride, direct, and how to dismount. She also demonstrated lunging the horses to let them wear off their friskiness. The girls will earn their Horse Lover badge from this after they all do a research paper on their favorite horse.
