What’s in Your Arena? is an EN series sponsored by Attwood Equestrian Surfaces in which riders share their favorite jumping exercises. It’s easy to get stuck in a training rut, and we hope this will inspire you with fresh ideas that you can take home and incorporate into your own programs. This week, however, we’re here at the American Eventing Championships and we’re taking a slightly different tack! Let’s have a look at the show jumping fences that appear on today’s Intermediate course.

Intermediate was the first division out of the gate on Sunday morning at the AEC.

The course, designed by Chris Barnard, rode beautifully. Here’s a look at it, jump by jump!
