It has been a long weekend. So I had a little wine and played around on Powerpoint. For the curious- this is the course I jumped this morning. The purple lines are the jumps.  Riders were allotted 68 seconds to get through fences 1-7 and 42 seconds to get through 8-13. 
Courses are drawn out and placed on a board by the arena. Before each jumper class riders have the opportunity to "walk the course." Literally. Typically accompanied by their trainer- the rider physically walks the course to count strides between fences and determine how to ride the best corners and lines. 
Follow the arrows now please!
