Having run whip cracking workshops once in Brighton , twice in London , and once in Glasgow this month, it was nice to be nearer home in a fantastic concert hall at The Lisaght Institute in Newport . Jan and Stephen Morgan had a refresher lesson with a two hour Introduction to Whip Cracking that not only covered the history of the whip, whip safety, whip maintenance and the myriad different types available but the opportunity to practice six different cracks with over twelve different types of whip from ten different makers from around the world to help decide what whip would suit them best ... so far we agreed that they really wanted one of each ..... :-)
Both Jan and Stephen are both experienced cow pokes having worked on cow and sheep ranches in America and wanted to add to their skills ready for their next trip out West. Yeehaw!!!
