October 9, 2014 (Descanso) – A “Trail Challenges” clinic will be held November 29th at Descanso Feed and Hay to benefit Garry and Ann McClintock.  Garry, a famed saddlemaker in Descanso, was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident.

Tindell’s Horse & Mule School is organizing the special one-day class, which will help riders learn how to use natural trail challenges to develop more control when trail riding.  Learn how to operate your horse or mule and become aware of their weaknesses and strengths.  The clinic will study skills needed to navigate terrain and deal with bicycles, hikers and other situations one might encounter on a ride.  Riders will practice six steps to support your horse or mule when the animals are nervous or unsure. Emphasis will be on keeping stock safe, calm and confident in all situations.

The clinic will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on November 29 at Descanso Hay and Feed. Cost is $200 per rider or $30 to audit the course. To register, call Cherie at (619)672-4504 or email
