The course is a little intense but you can set it up and break it up into a bunch of mini courses. Have fun!

8 to 9 a,b,c is crazy and a ton of bending lines :) Too bad my arena is too small for all these jumps too (not like I have that many anyways) but mini-courses definitely! I wish this had the measurements on it too, that makes it difficult :(

The well-known saying “chestnut mare, beware!” is not completely without foundation. Some go further and add “chestnut Thoroughbred mare, beware!”

Average human stride is 3ft, average pony stride is 9ft and horse stride is 12ft. So, do the math: with a horse, 4 steps is one stride, for a pony its 3.

Also, I can't remember but I think you're supposed to add in about 2 short steps extra for landing/take off, but I'm almost certain I'm wrong about that xD
