I wouldn't say it's point and shoot, especially for some of the people competing at that level. You still have to encourage your horse, and be there every second. If you drop them, unless you have a saint for a horse, they're not giong to jump. And my last BN was EXTREMLY technical with alot of turns and quick aproches, and alot of changing of light, and the terrian was hard too. So for some places, a blanket statement isn't that acurate. I do agree that N and BN arn't as hard nor do they ask the questions of T and P. But for the level of horse and rider competing there most of the time, it can be a big challenge!
Jumping a horse = Getting wings!
