Basically everytime me and Merlin attempt cross country its hilarious
We either charge around at breakneck speed hunt jumping everything or he skids to a halt and i fall off the next time we attempt a hunter trials!
(luckily we have improved our approach- he's now in a gag xc and ive learnt to sit back and kick on if a stop is on the way )
Soo.. on saturday there is an Eventer's Challenge which is jumping an SJ course and then off you pop into XC straightaway- Sj is timed however Xc is not (yay)
AND IM IN A PICKLE WHETHER OR NOT TO GO
d'you think i should brave it, have fun and build up his experience or should i wait until we're consistently clear and i've taken him xc schooling a couple of times??
