    Default The Antler Challenge: how are your x-c skills?

    Seems like an old-fashioned point to point is being revived as the new x-c event - anyone up for it?

    http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/news/397/305904.html

    And I wonder if this will attract more field hunters, steeplechasers/NH or eventers?

    Genesee Valley Hunt hosts an old-fashioned Point-to-Point every fall. It's mostly the field hunters as the course is unknown until race day and you have to know the area (well only if you want to do well!), so it's not ideal for those out of town eventers. A lot of it is knowing the footing and layout, say one field is real boggy you would either avoid it or take some time there or say you know your horse hates cows, you would avoid cow fields. Those little details add up really quick!

    It's definately on the my list and a goal for this year!
