Superstitions / Rituals / Beliefs "In the run-up to an event, I'll do some jump exercises with the horses two days before. The day before an event, I'll do some dressage schooling and run through the test. The cross-country course also needs to be walked several times." (horseandrideruk.com, 02 May 2013)
