We riders all know that our horse sees the world as if he had two brains instead of one. Haven’t we been told, over and over, “Turn her around and let her see that golf cart out of the other eye too, otherwise she’ll be spooked all over again when you go the other way.”

The required speeds on cross-country for the preliminary, intermediate and advanced levels have remained unchanged for nearly 50 years—520 meters per minute at preliminary, 550 at intermediate, and 570 at advanced. In order to come over the finish line without incurring time faults, horse and rider have to average these speeds around the entire course. Riders routinely slow down for sections where fences require a collected gait, such as banks or water, and maintain a gallop over single fences set at wider distances.
