The obstacle course is driven on time, style is no longer important. It must of course remain safe for horse and rider.
In the speedtrail, all obstacles are galloped, and it is the fastest time who wins.
You do get penalty seconds if you take a part incorrectly or, for example, knocking over the obstacle.
When riding both trails (style / speed), situations are simulated as they occurred in practice when performing work.
Taking an obstacle such as a bridge or a tree trunk, making short and fast turns, changing the tempo and switching between forward-backward and sideways
It is therefore important that you have had versatile basic training. You and your horse should be able to handle it in good harmony
