On Sunday, June 7, the clinician will be Clay Maier, famous for his Friesian Spectacular acts, seen by many local horse enthusiasts at the Draft Horse Classic. Maier has been training horses to drive for several decades, and has competed successfully in pleasure driving and combined driving events nationwide. Most recently he worked at the Kentucky Horse Park, helping to produce the opening ceremony for the World Equestrian Games. Maier is currently on staff at Sargent EquestrianCenter in Lodi. Maier is a master of the art of long-reining, which organizers describe as a ' wonderful way to communicate with horses -- including those who are not destined to pull a carriage. Maier will help owners and equines at all levels, from beginning long-reining to improving performance in the carriage. The clinic with Maier will begin at 9 a.m. Individual lessons will last approximately 45 minutes, and will cost $65. Auditors will pay $20. On Saturday, July 25, the clinician will be Nona Bales, who has taught clinics for High Mountain Riders for nine years. Bales has competed at the advanced level of combined driving, and is currently bringing her horse, Frank, up through the levels. Like Maier, Bales has taught many clinics around the United States. "Nona Bales is a wonderfully encouraging teacher who gives each participant a wealth of helpful information," said organizer Dorothy Edwards. A 45-minute lesson with Bales will cost $55. Auditors will be asked to make a donation to Horses Unlimited. "The two clinics present a rare opportunity for horse owners, both local and from all over Northern California and Western Nevada," said Edwards. "Long-reining and driving are great ways to have fun with equine partners of all types and sizes." For more information, or to reserve a lesson, call Edwards at 616-0858 or 283-9883, or email her at Isaac, a Friesian horse owned by Dorothy Edwards, cheerfully pulls his carriage along a country lane, having benefited from several driving clinics.

Donna 0 Connell, Owner FISHING, from page 11B comparison to commercial fishing, which provides. roughly $1.7 billion in annual economic benefits, recreational fishing is a major source of outdoor tourism, jobs and tax revenue for all 58 counties. Unprecedented decline in participation California's fishing participation rate is ranked dead last in the United States despite having one of the longest coastlines in the U.S., over 4,000 lakes/reservoirs and thousands of rivers and streams. Since 1980, when annual licenses were sold for as little as $5 dollars, California's annual fishing license sales have dropped by more than 55 percent (1980:$2.26 million; 2014: $990,000), while our state's population has increased by nearly 60 percent. In 2014, 40,000 fewer annual fishing licenses were sold compared to 2013. ff the 35-year trend remains constant, annual fishing license sales could fall below 500,000 by 2027, or another 49 percent over the next 12 years. Should this occur, between 1980 and 2027, annual license sales will have dropped 78 percent. This downward trend could accelerate if fees are increased substantially, or new regulations are imposed that increase costs or barriers to fishing. Antiquated licensing system California operates under an antiqued calendar system, whereby licenses expire on Dec. 31 of every year, Unbelievably low maintenance lawn Tired of mowing @ and feeding your @ lawn all the time?

This system discourages anglers from purchasing a license that is not valid a full 12 months. California does not provide a junior fishing license. According to the American Sportfishing Association, 71 percent of anglers first started fishing when they were under 18 years of age, underscoring the importance of removing costly barriers to entry for young anglers. Too costly to fish in California California offers the second highest fresh/saltwater annual fishing license in the U.S. What once sold for $5 in 1980, costs $47.01 today, not including permits that could increase the cost to more than $120 a year. California's "annual" base residential license of $47.01 is 66 percent above the average fishing license cost of all coastal states ($28.30) and 76 percent above the average fishing license cost for all states ($26.73), not including additional permits. Founded in 2014, the California Sportfishing League (CSL) is a nonprofit coalition of fresh and saltwater anglers, and small business owners devoted to protecting access to recreational fishing.
