REDMOND - A free training clinic and show for mustang horses is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 25-26 at the Cline Falls Ranch, 170 NW 67th Street, Redmond.

Anyone who owns a mustang (any Bureau of Land Management, Sheldon, or Reservation horse which was captured from or bred in the wild) should be interested in this event which is sponsored by the Central Oregon Wild Horse Coalition and the Ochoco National Forest.

There will be professional hands-on assistance from mustang trainers.

Organizers are accepting nominations for mustangs needing any type of training, from gentling to trailer loading and hauling. Renowned trainers Leslie Neuman and Todd Titus will be working directly with the horses on both days. This training is offered at no charge to the public and spectators are welcome.

The mustang show will consist of a variety of classes, from entry-level lead line to dressage suitability, ranch horse, tricks, and costume, with an emphasis on fun.
