Free clinic to target horses’ feet on Saturday

A saying as old as time, “no foot, no horse,” is as true today as it was when horses were the main vehicle for travel, says John Degenfelder of Ramona, inviting the public to his and wife Arvie’s Critterville Ranch for a free clinic on horses’ feet on Sept. 14.

Equine veterinarian John Stewart, a Ramona resident from Ireland, will share his knowledge about equine feet at the clinic, scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon.

Stewart, author of “Understanding the Horse’s Feet,” is a member of Ramona Trails Association, the nonprofit the Degenfelders helped establish.

“All of us want to know what to look for and how to take care of our horse’s feet,” said Degenfelder. “If your horse has a foot or feet problem that needs attention or correction, then he/she would make an excellent study subject. Everyone attending would benefit from the information gained.”

Critterville Ranch at 2433 Duraznitos Place has room for about five truck/trailer rigs in the riding ring and plenty of room for spectator cars, said Degenfelder.

“Bring cold drinks for yourself,” he said. “We will have cold fruit and other munchies available.

Degenfelder asks that equestrians contact him at 760-789-1716 or 760-500-1907 to let him know of their interest and if they have a horse to study.
