I always wondered how jumpers could remember a course when they may have only a few moments to memorize it. Puts us dressage riders to shame when we have months to memorize a test, and still use a "caller" . (mind you, only the low level riders do this)

oh trust me this is not proportionate at all! That line was a two stride (three for a small pony) and the angled one was further from all the jumps than shown. But that spiral one was a toughy my coach looked asked me "do you know what you're doing?" after the first girl jumped it and I responded with "dying", jokingly of course. It was easier than I had in my head though.

I forget quite a bit, I left out the halt the first time though on the horse I was riding that's pretty east, she likes to run out of the jumps! She loves jumping and gets excited, actually bucked last lesson.

My courses look exactly the same. I was mapping out the jumping course I did one day, and well, I never knew the arena was so tiny :P

If I am not riding I'm thinking about horses, and if I am not thinking about horses I'm riding

You want to try and design courses in a tight indoor arena where every fence has to be on a relative distance!

I can't be ANYWHERE near as difficult as those Driving courses in Aachen this year!!! I'd be dizzy and miss the turns even without a "pilot" in back of me to help!
Seriously, maybe you could use graphing paper next time. You have you horse hitting the standards more than once. =b

As a non-jumper, why are those bad courses? I thought you just had to not cross over yourself.
