Height of most jumps is 2' to 2'6", all have go-arounds. Jumping is entirely optional. The course is to be ridden as if it were a trail ride, choosing the gaits and speed appropriate to the terrain and wishes of the team members. Excessive speed is strongly discouraged.

There will be vet check points.
