Obstacle racing, hurdle and steeplechase, for the best jumpers, run by thoroughbreds intended in principle for the flat, are all the less of direct interest for the breeding of the purebred as the geldings appear in number among them.
They are no less spectacular and sometimes more richly endowed than certain classics of the dish. The options or retraining possibilities that they offer are therefore ultimately very interesting.
The obstacle training begins as for the flat, it continues by learning the jump: passage to the walk, the trot of tree trunks, then small vertical hedges of the order of 0.40 m.
The fastest in the intervals are directed towards the hurdles, the best jumpers towards the steeplechase, where the variety and the importance of the obstacles impose appropriate climbs and approach, in order to negotiate them as well as possible.
In the hurdles races (minimum distance of 2,500 m with at least 8 hurdles), which are lower and more uniform, the jump is carried out at full speed, in the train.
In all steeplechase races, endurance and power are essential. They take place over a minimum of 3000 m and 8 obstacles, at least half of which are different from each other.
