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 :(

thanks i will probably split it up and figure out the spacing but it is really helpful!

do any of you know how many human strides eauals 1 horses.

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
