I have seen a few wrecks that could have been avoided had there just been the jump and not the pits etc... Please accept my appology if I came off as dogging the athletes. I did not mean to come off that way.
I think as the maddens were saying you have to make sure that YOUR horse is right for the bigger jumps and can handle them.
