God's Green Acre Association is a 501(c)3 organization for girls ages 11 to 18 years old. Since 1962, GGAA has devoted its energy to empowering young women through a shared love of horses. Girls gain confidence learning about, caring for and riding horses, as well as building life-long friendships in a fun and family-friendly environment. The whole family is involved, driving tractors, preparing for shows.

For over 50 years, God's Green Acre Association has been devoted to empowering young women through a shared love of horses. Girls gain confidence through learning about and riding horses, as well as building lifelong friendships in a fun and family-friendly environment. 

We are a mounted troop with its roots in Webster Groves and Kirkwood (formerly Girl Scout Mounted Troop 1184). We have programs for girls ages 11 - 18 with a passion for horses. No riding experience necessary! No horse ownership required! Girls can ride a troop horse or board a personal horse. Our families come from all across the region, including Hillsboro, DeSoto, South County, Webster Groves, Kirkwood, Fenton and St. Charles County

GGAA is a volunteer-led not-for-profit. One way parents participate is through sharing Saturday chaperone duty. Duty parents offer carpooling and are on site during girls' hours.  Parents also assist with horse shows, parades,  and our parents' board.

 

Saturdays start the day out with a members meeting, then move on to their ranch chores. The remainder of the day is riding and spending time with the herd! Whether it's in the arena for jumping, the round pen mastering ground work
