- Hurdles races:
Hurdles races include a minimum of 7 obstacles to jump. These 7 “hurdles” are identical and are 1.10m high.


- Steeplechase races:
In this discipline, various different obstacles (walls, water jumps, etc.) are dotted along the course. Steeplechase obstacles are higher and more challenging than hurdles.
Steeplechase jumps vary from one race to another, and also from one racecourse to another.
