*****  Lillan Roquet, a former protégé of Linda Parelli, has now gone out on her own.  Part of her business is the giving of clinics.  She does a good job.  So good in fact, that after attending two  such clinics over in Nevada, Sandyjean decided to invite her to WNEC  to give one here  AGAIN  this coming May 2020.  It is three(3)-days of knowledge and horse filled days that are informative and enjoyable.  ***CHECK   PICTURES***  Although her first clinic is nearly filled, there are  TWO(2)  SPACES  LEFT!!!  🙂  Let us know if you are interested.  916-687-8900, or  *****

=====  Trail along Top of Levee is ready for riding your horse,  AGAIN!   Sandyjean used her New Trimmer and walked the whole 600-feet leveling weeds.  BE  SURE  TO  WALK  “ROUTE”  BY  YOURSELF  &  GET  FAMILIAR       B E F O R E   TAKING   YOUR   HORSE   “ALOFT”!  =====

*****  Winward Natural Equine Center has been a partner with the  “NEW”  Murieta Inn and Spa, located in Rancho Murieta, CA since they opened.  Some pretty nice reviews have been forthcoming about food & atmosphere.  We have included some appetizing pictures of a few of their foodstuff menus and are encouraging any & all to stop by & see them (be sure to mention Dr. W & Sandyjean of WNEC).  For any that are engaged in WNEC Horse Programs and Seminars, we encourage you to take advantage of their many rooms and suites.  Catering is another special feature of  Murieta  Inn & Spa!  Wait until you  SEE   INSIDE!  Call them for reservations or appointments at 916-354-3900  *****

+++++  THE  NEIGHBORHOOD  WAS  AWAKENED  TO  GUN  SHOTS  &  SCREAMING! ……….Y I K E S……….& it  wasn’t  Dr. W!!!

WNEC hosted a “Mounted Shooting” Seminar this past summer, with Guest Trainer Mindy Mosteiro.  Many folks trailered in for the weekend, and a great time was had by all.  Even the local Police were in attendance (“city-raised-neighbors” apparently thought a Civil War had erupted & new to “Country-Living-habits”, they panicked and we had a visit by the gendarmes). Of course, blanks were being used, while horse training for “abrupt & loud sounds” was being utilized for better & safer trail riding.   You may find “Dr W” occasionally parking his “running” tractor/lawn mower/utv at your horses stall gate or fence, to assist in this “foreign noise problem” with some horses. He’s even been seen feeding Fresh Green Mulberry Leaves to horses like “Billie”, “24Karat”, and others right from his tractor seat! +++++


Sorry, but one of the “Rules” of the ranch is:  that “all visiting dogs must be kept on leash”.   IF   you choose to leave them in your vehicle, please make sure that they have air, water…..AND,  DO  NOT  BARK  CONTINUALLY!!!!!  +++++
