XC Academy | Jumping the last fence
Never take the last fence for granted - It happens sometimes when riders are clear to this point then push on to the last fence pushing their horses out of balance and then they can leave a leg and land in a heap on the other side - all the hard work wiped out in one mistake.
Always make sure you are well balanced into the last fence. Although this one didn’t seem to affect the horses some arch ways over the top can cause a horse to duck.
If you need to increase speed to the finish line do it after the last fence not into it. Your not clear until after the fence.
