5abcde - Defender Valley
When riders leave the Main Arena they will travel downhill into Defender Valley (5). The terrain will require riders to keep their horses under them, so they have control to make the approach to this combination. They want to have a positive ride over the D-brush so they can keep moving to the triple brush at the top of the mound. There is a longer alternative here, but I don’t see many using it unless they get into trouble.
