WHY are we doing this?

At the end of 2018 We did a full month of groundhandling and it was a great experience.

Gemma’s skills improved a lot and many people suggested we should start a “course”.

We worked on it and here it is. It’s just our first one. We hope to do many more in the future.

Our objective is to have fun, meet new people and provide a safe environment for others to learn too.
