The funniest part of the video was those horse's ears moving depending on surroundings. :) I wonder what's the average speed on such course? Hard to judge from the video, but felt very fast.

Thanks for posting, Allison - that was very interesting one!

That is fantastic. Thanks for posting!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

No. 600. Meters. Per. Minute. It's how every xc is mesured. Bn goes at 350, novice at 375-400, training at 400-450, prelim at 400-475, most intermidates run at 550 and advanced/four star usually runs 575-600 meters per minute. That's how you get your minute markers.
