8. You don't need to draw in the rider/handler but it counts as 'effort' if you do and will therefore get you less points than someone who DOES draw the rider/handler.
To pre-register, note me with this form filled out.

Obstacle 1: Slalom, five bars, on horse: Lead the horse between the standing white bars (can be done in any pace).
Obstacle 2: Bucket Throw, on horse: You stand on the X (only on map, there is no X in "real life") and try to throw a bag of horse treats into the bucket (the O).
Obstacle 3: Potato-On-A-Spoon, on horse; You get a potato on a spoon and have to ride your horse from the first black line to the next as quickly as possible (can be done in any pace). If you lose the potato you must start over, if you lose it three times you continue.
Obstacle 4: Plank Walk, leading horse: You balance on a steady plank (about 10 cm/4 inches above the ground) while leading the horse.
The judge (Marie Williams, if you want to draw her somewhere in the image as well) will be standing in the middle of the arena and will help if anything happens.
You will not lose points or be penaltied if you draw your rider losing the potato or falling off the plank etc., it's completely okay!
