Delighted to be able to get back in the saddle and help out at the Western Skills Festival I founded in 2015. I'll be helping run the Whip Cracking Competitions and workshops, with a new organising committee it's moved from Black Hills of Wales to the Plains of Northampton to a larger venue that will provide totally seperate Whip Cracking and Knife Throwing Ranges together with a whole host of fun and workshops in a full range of Western Skills. Thanks to the generosity of old and new whip cracking friends and makers across the world we will be offering a range of quality whips and training DVDs as prizes.
So shake off those winter blues and get yourself down to join in the fun and learn some new skills .
