From time to time i do assistance to a s/j coarse builder.
Vary intersting as we get to shows, indoors in winter and outdoors in summer. Lots of holding the  tape and pole lifting .
Most of you that are in jumping would have met chaps like us.
Training shows we build starting at 60cm and finish at 1m.10

I went to an xmas show once and they had crammed 22 fences into the indoor arena, 90% of competitors got seriously lost!
