Guide to Safe Scouting restrictions
"Horseback riding activities are limited to Wolf Cub Scouts and older members." —G2SS: Horsemanship Activities
Bear in mind though, "activities" means "Scouting functions".
On the other hand, the awards requirements plainly state:
- "Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts may complete requirements in a family, den, pack, school, or community environment. Tiger Cubs must work with their parents or adult partners."
Without due consideration, this may be viewed as conflicting guidance; but, it is not...
- While the G2SS does, in fact, limit horseback riding at Scouting functions to Wolf Cub Scouts and older members, that does not preclude Tiger Cub Scouts from earning the Cub Scout Horseback Riding belt loop and pin —with their parent/adult partner present— in some other venue.
| Note: I have submitted a request to the National Council's Health & Safety desk for any potential clarification.|
Please carry any discussion over to (the Tiger Cubs section on) the talk page. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 14:54, July 22, 2010 (EDT)
