USEA Official Podcast Host Nicole Brown catches up with Ryan Wood who has been crowned the king of cross-country consistency. In 2018 Wood had 114 cross-country runs and all 114 were clear. In 2018 he was 123 clears from 126 runs, in 2020 it was 76 from 77, and last year Wood made it a perfect 77/77.
One of Wood's secrets to success? "Always be progressive. I start with the basics every time I cross-country school, whether it’s an Advanced horse or a green horse, so they are never put in a situation where they are questioning me."
