July 30, 2010, Newsletter Issue #389: Combined Driving Events - Obstacle Driving

Tip of the Week

The Obstacle Driving is usually driven in an arena (as would be the counter in riding, of Stadium Jumping). The obstacles are pairs of cones, set in a specific order and to be negotiated in that order within a specified time frame. Should the horse begin to canter in this Phase, it is usually not well taken, and although can not incur penalty points, it is a practise that is not encouraged. Drivers will be asked to perform circles, serpentines and changes of direction.
