In the February magazine of Horse illustrated, they have an article " 5 arena exercises for eventers". It's pretty cool and gives you some obstacles that you can introduce your horse to at home, before you do go.

I'll scan it in and make a post about it for ya.

how big is 2'6 that sounds huge.
Over here it goes.
Pre intro 55
Intro 65
Pre Training 85
Training 95
Open 1.05 and theres also A1 and Dc which is open but done on age groups.

For xc my horse has a normal bridle with a snaffle bit or a pelham with two reins depending on how he is on the day and what the course is like. Saddle blanket, saddle shock absorber pad, VSD saddle, wintec cair girth, either bandaged of medicine boots all round and bell boots up front and sometimes studs depending on the going.

And for me. Joddy boots and gaitors, joddys, hoody, back protector, jumping bat, helmet.

You might also want to work on ditches, some courses have them, others don't.

the good thing about my trails is that, it has buches of, ledges, ditches, creeks, logs, and all that stuff. So when spring comes imma ride all the time in the trails to get him ready.
