2019 HORSE HEADLINERS


Close encounters Trail clinic brings horses and bikes together


What could possibly be more desensitiz- ing for a group 14 trail horses than to line them up, facing across the arena from a similar amount of spooky mountain bikers? How about sending everyone—riders and bikers—circling the arena at once? At different speeds! Those were just two scenes during a thoughtful one-day clinic called “Learning to Share the Trail,” put on by the San Diego Trail Alliance at the River Valley Equestrian Center. After a “horse-and-rider only” morning of drills and coaching designed to desensitize horses to a variety of common trail encounters, SDTA members enjoyed a pizza lunch with members of the San Diego Mountain Biking Association, who partic- ipated in an afternoon of group exercises and discussions designed to edify both groups—riders and bikers—about their trail counterparts. The SDTA is a volunteer group with


three objectives: 1. Keep trails open for all recreational users; 2. Foster good com- munication between all recreational user groups; and 3. Maximize usage of recre- ational for all. “Getting more out of the trail means learning more about the people we share the trail with—and about what they enjoy about the trail,” reads an SDTA flyer. “And, most importantly, how to safely share.” http://bit.ly/9YIRmay3

WINNING TIME—The Southern California Reined Cow Horse Association wrapped up a super 2019 season with its September Classic and Year-end Awards at Green Acres Ranch. Familiar names as well as some new ones surfaced atop the standings, as a year’s worth of dedication and competition paid off with championships. In Open Bridle, Roy Rich took both the Champion and Reserve Champion spots on a pair of Rocking J Ranch horses. Competing in 10 shows aboard Soula Shining Star, Rich accumulated 49 points to earn the top spot and its $1,875 payout. Ranch Riding proved a very popular class in 2019, and siting atop both the Senior and Amateur standings was Birdie Avery, who took her NicInTheMix (aka “Talley”) to 39 and 66 points, respectively, to win two buckles.
