In the April 1991 issue of USCTA News (now Eventing USA), then-President Denny Emerson wrote about a good cross-country riding experience he had at the Walthour-Moss Foundation Horse Trials, which later gave way to the spring Southern Pines Horse Trials. He praises the course designer, Ireland's John Dillon, and warns that course builders must be "partners in developing horses and riders by presenting them with fair, inviting, and well constructed obstacles."

The cross-country course at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy is going to be an uphill battle, in every sense of the word. Not only will the 4* course be longer than last summer’s 2* test event course, but the extra distance will be uphill.
