Equestrian Scouting

The Sri Lanka Scout Association was the first organization to introduce, in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Equestrian Association (SLEA), Equestrian Scouting to the Scouting agenda in the Asia Pacific Region.[citation needed] Even though the equestrian proficiency badge has been included among the five essential badges a Scout must obtain to be subjected for the Scouts Awards, the activity has been set aside for the past few decades due to lack of facilities in the country. It was re-initiated in 2010 with the assistance of Premadasa Riding School.
