If you love horses, then you'll love this:

Altadena Stables is looking for high school students and young adults to assist as volunteer counselors for its Summer Horse Camp.

Having an experience with handling horses is preferred, but is not required as long as an individual has the desire and willingness to learn. Training sessions will be offered and will focus on safety, handling of horses, horse behavior, and grooming.

All participants for the training session must register in advance. For more information and to register, call the stables at 626 797-2012. Altadena Stables is located at 3064 Ridgeview Drive, Altadena, 91001. altadenastables.com

Get Ready for 2013 Summer Horse Camp!

We are planning a wonderful summer full of opportunities for your horse-loving child. Select the program that best meets your expectations -- we have something for everyone!

The emphasis here is on riding. On most days, campers will ride twice a day -- once in the morning and then again in the afternoon. They will also groom, saddle, bathe, and be involved in many other activities focused around the horses. Campers will have the opportunity to care for an equine buddy during the week. We offer both full-day and half-day sessions.

August 12-16

Full-day sessions: 8:30 to 2:30
