Cross-Country Tips from Olympian Leslie Law

British Olympian Leslie Law took a pack of eager Beginner Novice eventers around the championship Chattahooche Hills course here at the American Eventing Championships. What he had to say worked for Beginner Novice but I think resonates at any level.  Here are some of his tips.

We love pace.

Be positive coming out of the start box and get your horse well in front of your leg…and not looking like a drunk!

Keep your rhythm and carry your momentum downhill so long as you’re in balance.

Your eye will take you there. We look through the windshield not at the wheel.

Thanks for the tips Leslie!
