Trials Riding Stuff... Skills & a bit of fun...

Looking around on the web for some techniques stuff, I found loads of films, but the funniest & most informative seems to be the Auzzie films by the Western District Trials Club.

The narrator has a great sense of humour & there are loads of good silly bits in the each film to take any kind of seriousness out of the stuff their teaching... ;-)

I've learnt loads form watching these films, although I've only just got to the stage where I can pop a wheelie on the wee little beastie, so long way to go yet!!

Anyhoo, I thought I'd pop the links on here for anybody else to have a mooch at... I've also put some good entertainment clips from YouTube too, so we can easily while away a few hours on a wet cold night in!!
