When I jump stadium I just have to remember to keep a steady pace. With Willie it was never much of a problem, as long as I got him over the first one he'd just cruise around the rest of the course. With Donald, though, he just got waaaay too excited and all the jumps in one place made him a bit of a nutter. For cross country he had more time to get into a groove and it helped him calm down.
