Lunging Safely

Working with my new OTTB has been a learning curve. He was taught to lunge a very specific way, a way that was hard for me to perform, which confused him, and made our first exercise very bad.

Each one is briefly described below. But first, hunters are similar to jumpers. They differ in the way of which they are judged. Hunter judges... Continue Reading →

Why I Go To SmartPak for Everything
