In the case of this tip – We make all the expensive mistakes so you don’t have to!
Check where the finish line is for the Cross Country and the Showjumping.
At Bicton the finish line was in a ridiculous place with string in 3 areas so it was not terribly clear and I jumped the last fence and blythely carried up the hill unaware that the finish line in fact required a 90 degree turn after the last fence. I missed elimination by the skin of my teeth and gained 18 time faults. I was not the only person to do this and I hope this does not become a new trend with course designers as frankly finish lines should be obvious and in straight lines after the last fence unless unavoidable (which this one was not).
