Want to be as succesful as Mary? Try her top tips!

The more prepared you are, the better, so make sure you learn your test thoroughly. There’s nothing more embarassing than getting it wrong!

Walk your lines, not just the fence order. The better your lines are, the more balanced your horse will be going, and the more likely you will be to get a clear round!

Cross country
It’s easy to miss a fence during your course walk, so if there’s a map, check it before you start! Everyone misses a fence at some point, even professionals! Just remember, the most important thing about becoming a top rider is to always follow your dreams!
