    Wink Spin-off: Handy Guide to Your Future, Under 25's

    Oh yes, let there be no mistake - Coach O'Connor is serious about developing winning team members. Just to prove that the COTH event board is actually useful, here's a snowy Saturday afternoon's 60-minute primer on Coach O'Connor. And trust me, I scratched the surface. There's a lot more available, although the website is seriously out of date, unfortunately. I only hit the Google button once and the Bing button once, and look at all the stuff I came up with. Credit should be given to Horse Junkies United and Ecogold, because by virtue of Coach O'Connor's time as the Canadian team leader, they have lots of good video of training sessions most of which are online under those YouTube accounts. This is a gold mine of good stuff.
