But if it is, you would do best to contact someone locally about all the specifics.

Certainly the idea of doing long, slow distance and building up a base is universal.. but for us in the US, we don't have to do all the qualifying up in distance at specific times, etc that I think you need to do across the pond.
We are FEI in Australia as well.

newer wrist GPS's take into account elevation and can give overland as well as crows flies distance. But yeh you gotta account for it.

My garmin 300 lists elevation, but I wonder if it counts in the total mileage?

Hmmmm some will show it, but doesn't really count it.

I believe this is the case with mine. They track elevation climb, but track milage on a two-dimensional plane, so it doesn't get counted in your milage.

I bought the 301 for the heartrate monitor - needed it for cross country training, then later bought the conversion kit from that guy online who sends you the stuff to make it into a horse one. Now I can get all the stats on my wrist (mph, distance, time, hr) and am spoiled rotten.
