Do you have any tips for cross country?

Do you have any tips for cross country?
Thankyou this will help a lot x
More to spook at so stay with the horse, don’t get too ahead before the takeoff because more reason for them to refuse at these odd jumps. With drops remember to stay behind the motion, etc.

Here is a good article:

Thank you I absolutely love cross country and so does my horse so keep calm tips will be hard 😂 thanks guys
Breath and stay upright don’t go to far forward or back
Try to stay calm! If you are nervous or super hyped your horse will be too, which can make it harder to ride! Before you start doing any jumping or any fast paced riding do a nice calm warmup to make sure you have control over your horse and see how they’re feeling.

Hope this helps! Have fun!!
