Dear Alberta Donkey and Mule Club

“Dear Alberta Donkey and Mule Club:
My name is Mark Snell; my wife and myself are donkey and mule breeders from Saskatchewan.  I have been involved in mules for the last 10 years and have seen many different clinicians and trainers all over from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. and recently, as of 2 years ago since I joined the A.D.M.C., I have finally begun to understand the donkey and mule only for the fact of the clinician, Jerry Tindell.  I just wanted to let you all know that I have seen an improvement in my stock mainly because of Jerry.  I have tried different training methods from other clinicians and have not seen the results.  Jerry’s methods work on the stock as well as make sense to the people.  From my own experience, other clinicians make people feel incompetent and small and in a way take peoples’ confidence away.  Jerry, on the other hand, gives you the tools to work with your stock and gives you the confidence to help them and he helps you do it in a safe and healthy manner.

I would like to say thank you for bringing Jerry in to Canada for these clinics.  I realize it is a huge job and an expense to bring him in, but it is my opinion Jerry is the only clinician and trainer that has the knowledge and experience to work with mules and donkeys.  There are many who claim to have the experience but they have not proven it yet.  I can only speak for my family but I look forward to Jerry’s return next year and so does my son who audited the colt starting I took this year.  He is already looking forward to taking a riding clinic from Jerry.”

Thank you once again~
