Depend of the horses strenghts and weaknesses. If they are quite I would focus more on the speed and turns. If they are a bit slower then more or turns and taking out strides stuff like that
I go for speed, i know my older horse jumps clean and being an ex-barrel horse his turns are clean and sharp, whereas my younger horse we go for options and end up testing what he can do😊
Dependant on what horse I'm riding - slower horses I tend to go options, but they need to be able to turn, fast horses, speed, while still taking as many options I can.
For me, I would say options.
