Home Clinic with Buster and Sheryl McLaury, Paducah, TX. Participants are encouraged to bring to bring two horses: a colt or young horse to work with and a more experienced horse for horsemanship. If you are unable to bring a horse, call us and we will arrange for you to lease one. Most riding will be done outside over varied terrain. We'll try to have some cattle on hand to have a little fun with and practice with roping skills. Home clinics are kept small so each rider can get plenty of help with whatever they'd like to work on. Participants will stay in our home and bunkhouse. Sheryl will provide everyone with three meals a day, and she enjoys a reputation as an excellent cook. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. Saturday night, we'll have a cookout and fun around a campfire, with authentic cowboy poetry under the Texas stars. FMI call 806-492-2711 or 806-773-1649 or visit
