Riders from SFF's Jinx McCain Horsemanship Program to participate in Horse Cutting Classic 2
Oct 17, 2011 - Oct 21, 2011
Nokesville, VA — As a part of Semper Fi Fund’s Jinx McCain Horsemanship Program, the Semper Fi Fund will be sending ten select wounded Marines from the Marine Corps’ Wounded Warrior Regiment (WWR) once again to participate in the Wounded Warrior Cutting Horse Classic at the D & M Cattle Company in Nokesville, Virginia.
During this weeklong event, riders will enhance their horsemanship skills and be given the opportunity to strengthen themselves in their recoveries, both physically and mentally.
Early this year, the SFF sent ten riders to the WWR’s Inaugural Horse Cutting Classic and it was a huge success. Check out the video below and see how our warriors excelled at the event.

The Jinx McCain Horsemanship Program (JMH) is a new facet of the Semper Fi Fund’s Team Semper Fi (TSF). The program will provide horsemanship clinics across the nation to wounded service members and their families.
The TSF horsemanship program is dedicated in memory of Col Jinx McCain, USMC. Jinx was a 4-time Purple Heart recipient from Iwo Jima, Korea, and Vietnam. While stationed at Camp Pendleton, California in the 1960’s, Jinx would host trail rides for the amputees from Vietnam. His daughter still works at the Camp Pendleton stables and carries on his legacy.
