Any tips on starting cross country?
Practice rythmical and confident canters hacking out, and making sure you have complete control. Practice light seat too!see if you can collect and extend your canters also. And Find if there are any local pony clubs or private instructors having XC clinics.☺️
Don't try a jump if you are afraid of it, but have fun! I love XC and it does take a brave horse and rider but this come with time, patience and practice, so make sure you have a secure jumping position and go to as many clinics as you can, you will learn heaps!
