HOOFBEAT By Dorothy

HOOFBEAT By Dorothy Rogers There is something very special that happens between a human and a first horse whether the human is a child or an adult. It’s a continuing love story that deepens through the years etching itself in memory and healing without judgment. Do you remember the thrill of your first horse? Literary Options Jump on the chance: Barb’s Wild Weekend set for March 2-4 proves intriguing. A book club with the option of riding – all inclusive at the beautiful V6 Ranch in Parkfield (although you need not ride).The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls is the selection for this year’s gathering. Don’t let the “wild weekend” throw you: Barb (along with the rest of the Varian family) are some of the nicest folks you’ll ever encounter. $550 or $650 per person. Space is limited and this event nearly always sells out to folks from all over the US. Share on a delightful ranch with beauty all around. the green should be starting by the time the event gets started so take your camera. v6ranch@gmail.com or call 748-4984 are the keys to joining the fun with new friends.

The latest gigantic burn areas haven’t had enough time to start some grass and ground cover to help constrain erosion. This is especially true with areas down south like the lands of the Thomas Fire. It is not only a courtesy to stay off of regular public trails until they have sufficient time to dry, but it is virtually a necessity to keep them in shape for riding all year. Paso Horse Park It is with thanks that we relate to the equine community that Paso Horse Park 3801 Hughes Parkway, Paso has, once again, offered a hand of help. Equines involved in the fires down south were offered a place to stay until a more permanent housing situation could be found. The schooling shows and regular events begin again this spring. Spectator entries are gratis. The folks are friendly, so stop by and take in the lovely horses while asking questions about jumping. Could Your Favorite Club Use New Energy? Send your blessings and results to info@calclassics.net with your name, trainer’s name, your horse’s name, a contact phone number, etc. You need not write a story, but share a few details with us to help strengthen our equine family. Like you, we especially like to hear and celebrate the achievements of our youth. Many of today’s leaders attribute their 42 PASO Magazine, February 2018
