Bank Ba­sics

Practical Horseman - - Inside Your Ride -

Tra­di­tional “up” banks and “down” banks, also known as drops, are such an in­te­gral part of the cross-coun­try phase of event­ing that they first ap­pear on Beginner Novice cour­ses. They usu­ally in­volve square-ish steps for­ti­fied, or “revet­ted,” with ver­ti­cally stacked logs or tele­phone poles. At the lower lev­els, they typ­i­cally stand alone, but the up­per lev­els of­ten com­bine drops, banks and other el­e­ments via re­lated dis­tances.

The max­i­mum di­men­sions for drops and banks at Beginner Novice level are 3-foot-3 and 2-foot-5, re­spec­tively.
