    PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK :

    WRITTEN TESTIMONIALS:

    "There are a few key moments in a rider's life when his or her eyes are opened just a little bit wider. Today's Blackfoot GS course day was one of those for me. I had never been on dirt through my forty years of being licensed. I was nervouse. I wasn't sure if I could handle it. I wasn't sure I wouldn't kill myself! What a great day! Dirt, gravel, hills and sand don't scare me anymore - And it's all because of the fantastic instruction and tremendous patience provided by JR, Richard, Tobi and Rozzie. Thanks a ton guys!!" - R.S.

    "Learned body positioning, safety techniques. Instructors very knowledgeable! Excellent technique demonstrations, instructors happy to answer questions, 2 of the best instructors (in anything) I've ever had!" - C.B.
