No definitly not!, There are usually two parts you go through with show-jumping, At a competition. Your have your first round where your be aiming for a clear round. This clear round first means you shouldn't be galloping at break-neck speed. You should be cantering around this course in synch with your horse, A good rythem towards the jump. Nice big scoopey circles. In the jump off. Second part. You see some riders. Being truly risky! gallopin round these corners. This is the whole aim for quickest but you still need to be open minded because most poles will be down when riders aren't paying close attention to the jump it self and not counting it as it's just as important as each fence! enjoy your show-jumping it's great fun!, I have a seriously competitive showjumper which is a big whizzer in the jump off's. and a 14.3 six year old that I've just finished training with and is ready to compete, so don't rush your showjumping expiriences, stick to clear rounds before you go competiting properly ! then your find the jump off's alot easier. Hope you get some GREAT wins for the future!

Also - You say half way through the course? Well once they come into the arena they have exactly 45 seconds to cross the start line, once they are over the first fence the timer starts! x

when they start the timer in the middle its called power & speed. the first half of the course is power, so you just have to jump clear, not go fast. the second half is like a jump off, you want to be fast & clear. if you knock a jump in the power phase you stop & dont go on to the speed phase.

Go to "User CP" which is in the upper left hand corner of the page, go down and click signature, and choose an image from your desktop. And put some text in if you like.


A little irrelevant tho! haha
