NO, NO, NO, NO...AND NO
If you head out towards Great Meadow on Saturday, October 16th looking for the International Gold Cup "steeplechase" races and you see anything that looks remotely like this, you are in the WRONG place.
Check with your GPS, your iPhone, your Blackberry, your girlfriend, or heaven forbid, stop and ASK for directions.
You are looking for HORSES jumping. It's much more fun, more beautiful, more inspiring, etc.
The people steeplechase looks wet, sweaty, uncomfortable and generally not so much fun.
