One thing that I would tell younger members is that they shouldn’t be nervous, they will meet so many people that are just like them.

My favorite way to prep for a HM certification is studying with other members in my club and my dad.

If I could try any other discipline is fox hunting. I want to try is because my current mount Walter was an excellent fox hunter in his younger days.
