    Yep, course is really boggy and really bendy lmao.. watch out for the sharp corners followed by low hanging branches PMSL..
    Especially the one near the water jump *#)

    now im worried!! sounds like im going to find it difficult on my big tank of a horse! Ive taken him to serpentine in the boggy narrow xc track - is it like that or worse?

    Serpentine is better, not as windy.

    I went to the second baldivis and i found it pretty hard on my boy. Dont try to make time because its pretty pointless because of all the corners. there is alot of boggy bits and narrow paths that are very windy, after xc on chocco his leg swelled up and so i think i may have pushed him a big too much. GOOD LUCKKK

    My horse is 16.1 and I have no trouble getting around in time, usually to fast :p. The course is sand, but no worse than any other place, that has sand.

    You will have no problems with time if you make up for it along the couple of straight parts. I think that Bianca & Alice may Win it.;)

    Agreed to that PR. Bear wont get that leg right :( I gave him the week off because I haven't been feeling the best, but will be down there everyday next week, probably doing everything.

    Will practice dressage at home and go into the NP along the firebreak to practice being in the bush. Maybe if i'm nice i can get some arena time at ExBritKid's place. **Thinks about jumps seen there on Sunday**
