Bev and Peter from Ontario Canada Number of programs attended 4 Date attended 10/21/12 - 10/26/12 Great program and very capable leaders. Ponies were the best part but the lectures and demos were first class. Greatly appreciated the first class travel arrangements made- the departure from the Toronto Airport to the Airport in Salibury and the rental car. Top notch service. Thanks everyone.
