Description of Courses and Jumps

All courses are designed to be the same as our recognized courses with possible modifications.  They will include for Training and Novice: logs, water, oxers, jumps up hill, jumps downhill, and a ditch.  Elementary through Beginner Novice courses are very straight-forward, introducing horses to going cross country and requiring riders to go uphill and downhill and jump fences and logs in a very easy manner.  Beginner Novice may have water and a simple ditch.
