Yes, it is. Especially if it's a trot rails class where you have to trot.

Go for it! I did my first jumping course at a show last summer, and I was uber nervous. I was convinced I would forget the course! I got a schooling round and the course turned out to be pretty simple! My coach even let me do the 2'3 class. It was just a couple outside and diagnol lines. No sweat, just go for it for the fun and experience!

oh no!! Why've they cancelled it?

Like has been said, the courses at 18" level are usually pretty simple. I rode a real nice one a few weeks ago at that height, crossrails and verticals with one or two spreads and a double that was just beautiful. The last turn was a killer (I had to jump, turn REALLY quick around the fence I just jumped, and jump a fence on right angles to the second to last, but it HAD to be jumped from the same side I approached the second to last from so it was a difficult line to do quickly as it was a really tight turn) but otherwise the lines were really easy and the fences inviting. It was an unusually difficult course for 18" height and I still found it very easy.

Some horses at the farm where they're having it have Strangles, so they don't want it spreading.

Ahhh fair enough. We had a strangles scare here a couple of years ago, a few horses at a boarding facility in Perth came down with it and then two horses in my town came down with a nasty cold that looked a lot like strangles, but they tested negative to it. Still, until the news of the negative tests came out, the whole town's equestrian community was in lockdown, because it's SO contagious. And very nasty unless the horses that get it have fast and proper vet care.
