Advanced competitors will tackle Derek di Grazia’s highly anticipated new course today at the Pine Top Advanced Horse Trials in Thomson, Georgia.
There is a lot going on in this 6 minute, 16 second course, with 20 numbered jumps and 34 efforts. There are two back-to-back AB combinations at the beginning of the course, and then an ABC combination at nearly every other numbered jump until the end. It looks busy, but there is still plenty of room to gallop.
The Advanced Test B division will finish up show jumping at 9 a.m. this morning, and the Advanced cross country will get under way at 1 p.m.
Enjoy this virtual walk around the Advanced course, which is beautifully constructed by course builder Rob Mobley from pine trees felled right on Pine Top Farm.
