Watch out for that first step – it’s a doozy! I think there are two kinds of eventers in the world: those that feel better and more confident as they walk a cross country course and those that get even more nervous because the jumps look bigger the closer you stand to them. I’m not saying one is better than the other, it’s just down to different personalities. You can count me in the latter category. I can’t even imagine ever walking up to a legitimate cliff like the one that is the drop into the Leaf Pit at Burghley this year. Look out below!
