However, he lacks experience with horses and horsemanship principles. That's all right. That's why he's here. It has reminded me that we are not all born with the horsemanship knowledge that is often times taken for granted.

Bob Kiser, owner of Kiser Arena Specialists, points you in the right direction for footing material you can use for just about any event.
