Despooking -- bending -- handling weight shifts -- lead changes...
I think it has a lot more to offer than the other games, though
adding in a barrel at the end for cornering and a second row of
heads on the way back -- rather like the way CMS does their basic
balloon course -- would make it even better... and what would
*really* be neat is if there was a paper ribbon 7' off the ground at
each end that you had to make it under. (Both horse and rider have
to duck those swinging pikes). That would really force some nice
focus on how well the rider can control their balance and how well
they are with their horse. (Asking the horse to get soft and drop
the head while maintaining the forward pace while the rider is
...okay, so mebbe Phooka and Jester would need the ribbon to be 8'
off the ground ;)
That's my $0.02...
