Enjoy your day, we here in Alberton are having a blast with Susan Salo. Sorry but the weave pole webinar I am working on is looking like it may be a two parter. Stay tuned, will launch them, but likely not until next week. Trust me it will be worth the wait!
Today I am grateful for some nice weather while Susan Salo is here to share her jumping magic!
