Benefits: Possible to set up in a 50m arena. The 10m spacing between targets ensure that even at walk there is some urgency with nocking. The angulation of targets on the angled track variant is not severe so the course is possible for disabled riders with limited ability to turn in the saddle.

Safety notes: None
