I always walk the course - its annoying because you have to wear what you would be wearing on the course - so you can't do the walk in comfy sneakers, you have to wear you boots and helmet.

The jumps are numbered and often there is a map, if not you can make your own. Generally its pretty easy though, at least at the lower levels, you can often see the next jump.

Really?? Why do you have to wear riding clothes to walk the course?? Is it a rule over there? Over here you can wear whatever you want and most people walk the course the day before the show.

I was thinking the same thing, equineeventer. I have always walked in sneakers and shorts.

You can walk the course starting at 5:00 the friday before the competition here. Then all day saturday when we have XC.

XC isn't always just a big open field. A lot of courses I go to require you to go through brush and trees sometimes. It mixes it up a bit and it's pretty fun, depending on how your horse feels about it.
