Leadership Opportunity at Horse Camp

Teri Botfield, a professional horse trainer, riding instructor and former schoolteacher, is offering high school students and young adults the opportunity to cultivate leadership skills in a “stable” environment through her volunteer Horse Camp Counselor program at Altadena Stables.
Experience engaging with children and horses is not necessary as long as the individual has the desire and willingness to learn. Counselor training sessions, involving horse handling, will focus on safety and components of leadership, including awareness, assertiveness, verbal and nonverbal communication, and emotional intelligence.
The counselor training session is on Saturday, June 10, from 2-4:30 p.m. at Altadena Stables. For individuals who have a conflict with this date, there is a possibility of other arrangements. All participants must register in advance.
Altadena Stables has been hosting successful horse camps for more than 25 years and Botfield’s extensive equestrian and educational experiences bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to her programs.
Volunteer counselors may be able to use this valuable experience to fulfill their required school service hours. For more information and to register, call Botfield at (818) 359-3594.
