Okay.... your at a horse show... there are 6 people in your cross rail class. You can trot the 4 jumps or you can canter them. You go once around the 4 jumps.
So riders one through five canter the 4 cross rails. Then the sixth rider trots over the cross rails.
Do you think that person will get last place because she did not canter the jumps like the other riders did?
Or will she place well because she has good form while the other riders forms arent so good.
