C from releases and staff reports


ORNING—The weather tricksters were at work during the fi rst West Coast Reining Horse Association fi rst


affi liate show of the year held March 2-4 at the Equestrian Center at Rolling Hills Casino. California reiners don’t get to show in snowy weather too oſt en, but the snow that was predicted, thankfully, did not materialize.
