Each person will go through the course a second time with this one counting for the competition. First and second place (highest points) contestant will be presented with a prize.
The course will consist of liberty maneuvers leading into obstacles without halter and lead rope. Contestants will be able to have a dressage crop used as an extension of arm. If a lead rope is needed it must be held loose without pulling on it. The course will consist of eight or more obstacles. The course is timed but is also judged on consistency and how the horse and owner perform through each obstacle.
