What do you think it takes to ride on either of these teams? I know NCAA is much harder than the IHSA college teams to get into. I looked up some shows of both on youtube, and NCAA does fences about a foot and half higher than the ones I do, and the IHSA teams I saw does "get on strange horse and jump a course without practicing on the horse" (forget what you call it) often. I know I could do the second one now if I was really lucky, but I would still have to practice hard to do this for real.
What should I have really perfected to be a good candidate? What kind of fences should I be jumping?
