    I think that is a cool idea! Maybe it will interest people in running the course with a horse!

    I did! In Normandy, Haras du Pin, for the annual Cani-cross during the World Cup!
    We had to run 5km, hills and water, and jump through a jump!!!

    Cani-Cross - Me and a beautiful Barzoï! Running with a new friend I met there and her labrador - We arrived last!

    In the water!

    It does look like fun. Would like to try that around here... oh wait we call that hiking and I don't like that anymore.

    Looks happy but thin as a runway model and we know that isn't healthy, besides it's giving my pyr a body image complex and I would hate to see her go bulimic.

    I did a 5k on the Radnor Hunt XC course last August--so much fun! It's probably the only time I'll ever get over a 2* jump in any way, shape or form .
