4 LEG ADVENTURES’ SUMMER CAMPS

At 4 Leg Adventures, we offer a summer camp experience for ages 3 through 15. We believe it’s important for children to unwind after the school year in a relaxed environment where they can develop equine skills, build conflict resolution techniques, and feel inspired to take steps to their own personal growth. Our summer camps are created as a place where children can feel natural and self-assured in themselves and where peace and confidence can thrive.

 

We will have games, crafts, storytelling, free time, exploration, and daily horse interactions including grooming, riding, groundwork, and maintenance (time with horses depends on the camp you sign up for). Through instruction, our horses teach about responsibility, relationship, communication, and teamwork. At the same time, horses balance people, softening an abrupt child and bringing out a more reserved child. We strive to create a safe, educational and fun environment for our campers!

My daughters attended 4legadventures summer camp and I can’t tell you how amazing it was for them.  They chipped in on farm chores, learned to take care of animals and got to ride Julietta's gentle horses.  My youngest was afraid but Julietta's patience, knowledge, and skill helped her to not only ride but trot.  Every-time my children are involved with 4legadventures, I see their confidence soar and their hearts more at peace.  I highly recommend her programs for children and adults alike!

What a joy it was to watch my 5 year old daughter, who not long ago was timid and scared around horses, ride back to the barn with a giant smile on her face after her riding lesson with 4legadventures.  She was riding bareback and she was completely at ease!  Julietta's knowledge as well as her deep love and respect for both horses and children make her a wonderful mentor.  I highly recommend the children's programs offered by 4legadventures."

My 5 year old daughter loves horses and I’ve watched her confidence and skills blossom under Julietta’s experienced, warm teaching style. I love seeing her lead a huge horse or trot with no hands with all the ease in the world!
