Wolter returning for horse clinic June 1-4

At last year's event, Joe Wolter works with Kathy Moss of Prairie City. Wolter will provide a four-day horse clinic June 1-4 this year at the Grant County Fairgrounds.

Joe Wolter will be back in John Day for the fifth straight year to teach horsemanship, cow work and ranch roping at the Grant County Fairgrounds June 1 - 4.

One of the most sought-after trainers working today, Wolter travels the world conducting clinics, but says he always looks forward to John Day.

“It’s one of my favorite clinics. The fairgrounds facilities are hard to beat and everyone is so friendly and welcoming, plus there’s just a lot of good horse people that seem to show up there,” he said.

Rider enrollment is currently full, but spectators are welcome. Admission is $30 per day for adults. 4H, FFA and children under 12 are free.

“We’re so fortunate to have someone of Joe’s stature coming to Grant County,” says clinic sponsor Patti Hudson of Long Creek. “I have people from all over the Northwest signed up to ride this year and there’s even a woman from Australia coming. In the past I’ve had others from Norway, Germany and New Zealand.”

Morning horsemanship classes will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, followed by afternoon cow work. The roping class will be all day on Monday. Ben and Chandra Holliday are providing the cattle. Toni Clark’s Long Creek Chuck Wagon will put on a dinner for all the participants on Saturday night.
