Tiger-trap, Tidpit Down
A Tiger-trap is a cross-country fence consisting of rails set at an angle over either a deep ditch or a wire fence. There can be either one set of rails or two sets forming an inverted 'V'. They are inviting for horses to jump as they are usually low-ish and wide. Horses prefer to jump long and wide rather than high - which is not natural for them.
