when jumping ... ?

Postby bghorses » Sun Jul 10, 2011 4:26 am

Hi again
A quick question - here in Bulgaria at the jumping competitions while you are jumping the horse and rider which is to jump after you is walking around the jumping ring ... does this happen in the UK?

I didn't think it did, but the organisers have assured me it does happen, even in interntional showjumping??

I've seen quite a few times that the waiting rider/horse gets in the way of the jumping horse.

Thank you

Ive seen this at big shows and competitions - but some places just make sure people are waiting by the gate ready to go in as the other horse finishes.

You just have to learn to watch where you are going really lol!
