Horsing around to help troubled youth

Callum Snell is a horse educator, trick rider, and entertainer.

He's travelled the world and has worked in shows too numerous to name.

Cal was 16 years old when he landed a gig performing in the Outback Spectacular.

He was one of the original members of the cast and his success grew from there.

His sister, Clancy Snell, has a life story just as interesting and she too is a gypsy soul.

Clancy spends part of her time teaching in remote indigenous communities in the Northern Territory.

She then spends the other half of the year working on a ranch in Canada.

Clancy and Cal are the children of Phillip Snell and Del McLennan.

They grew up on a farm in Armidale, but spent most of their childhood weekends at Nymboida.

The siblings plan to combine their love and experience with animals and education to help troubled youths in the area.

We'll share their stories and a few more photographs in tomorrow's The Daily Examiner.
