ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Jack Young has trained and showed professionally in the past, mostly working cow horses. He has also judged, both Western and English. A graduate of CalPoly at San Luis Obispo, California, he ran the horse unit at Fresno State, in Fresno, California, for four years and coached the judging team. Then he had his own training stables in Fresno. He was around Ray Hunt and Tom Dorrance back in their pre-clinic days, before they became famous, working with Ray for a number of years. He rodeoed a little, and has buckarooed off and on over the years. In central California, he dayworked for Silva's Feedlot, Dutra, and Giffens. In Nevada he worked for the Horseshoe, and dayworked on ranches in Paradise Valley and Orovada, including the Grayson, the 96, the Home Ranch and the UC. Jack currently does some training, lessons, clinics, and helping with local and state 4-H horse activities.
