XC Academy | Jumping a table to two brush arrowheads
This combination is a test of being forward and balanced on a continual curving line which mustn’t be shaved. If you shaved the line to the first arrowhead you would have the wrong approach for the 2nd arrowhead as you would over shoot it and have to jump on a right to left angle which would give plenty of opportunity for the horse to duck out.
The table is big enough and you need a good forward balanced canter to counter the distance of the table. It should be jumped in the middle to get a nice forward curving 7 strides to the first arrow head and then another 4 forward to the second arrowhead.
We got this spot on.
