Efficiency tests:

As from January 2014 I have decided that on the last lesson of every
month we will do a little theory/practical efficiency test to help us learn
more about horses and the sport we love.

I will then at the end of every 3 months hand house Kasaba Bay
certificates to each person that has completed the 3 test for that term.

Next Test date: 22nd March 2014

A horse has approximately 205 bones
