I think it definitely depends on the facility. I am from Area IV and the courses are all very different. Heritage Park is a good "intro and move up" course while Longview is a "you better be good at this level" course. Maui Jim Horse Trials at Lamplight (where the AEC's are being held) is in my area too and it's very challenging.
StormyBlues- Ocala is VERY challenging! I've been down there (to watch and groom, but not to ride) and have seen both of my friends who are very good riders get dumped at the water complex. Rocking Horse isn't AS challenging, but still a pretty tough course.
