An entire profession is devoted to designing and building jump courses, but w it can be a little easier to create your own show-quality course at home! This highly illustrated instruction manual explains - with the aid of hundreds of colour photographs, diagrams, and tables - the jump components used in different horse show divisions, how course designers select the tracks to be followed, and what factors make a course more or less difficult to ride. This book is essential for anyone who wants to better understand the concepts of course design and is a valuable training aid for those looking for inspiration when schooling or teaching riders at home.
