  3. What a great video, I’m new at having a horse and have so much to learn. So having someone who gets right to the point in a video was awesome. Great job

    We do a lot of teaching of horsemanship and summer camps.

    Apparently Adobe and Apple are having a bit of a dispute so most PDF and Flash won’t display on IPad 3 or 4.
