Hi, Daisy, here is our video of the FMFC and Send.

The first few trials (not all are shown on the video as there was basically no improvement from trial 1) I was always running into the dog’s line when doing the FC close to #2.

Thank you for commenting!

Sabine

Thank you, @Daisy Peel, for another very helpful feedback! Just to clearify, when I was talking about ‘no improvement’ I was talking about trials 2-4, which are not shown on the video (I was always running into Dizzy’s line). I also thought that trial 5 was better then those, but that’s really very interesting, that you consider trial 5 the best (I am very proud about this A+ from you 🙂 ), when I thought trial 6 or trial 9 were. Will have to re-watch the video and compare, but thank you for giving me such a clear goal to… Read more »

Here you go. Lesson 2.1. On our first attempt, Spiff dropped bar 3. I wasn’t surprised, dropping bars on a slice has been a problem. I have thought that any choppy handling on my part and often my opposite arm causes handler focus and her raising her head. I don’t know here what caused it. If you can see something I can fix I will be forever in your debt!

Sandra Haigler

Got it. Thanks.

Hi Daisy. Here is our forward motion front cross and send.

Here’s our FX and Send.

I think you’re focused on that little competition you’re going to in Europe so I won’t expect to hear from you for a bit. 🙂

I’m just going to indicate that I’m done and keep working on these drills.

Have a blast and good luck! Go team Daisy and Frodo!

Worked this on Sunday, had some problems to begin with getting in his path, while running it I thought I improved that has we prescribed, but when I watched this I wasn’t certain I placed the FC appropriately.

We are just back from lab specialty and excited to get back to working through these skills. I think these first three are going to require lots of practice for me, but decided to give them one more shot before moving on. I worked on not dipping into his line, but then didn’t get him through the gap (always more to work, I guess?). Looking back at Linda”s comments “It is important for students to be sure they have made a connection as the dog lands off jump 3 before moving toward 4. If you are showing no motion, and… Read more »

Daisy, I feel I’m getting a little better about dipping back into Andy’s path. I think I could use more work on this and I’ll keep working at it, along with the plank exercise.

Daisy, here is my video with a plank…sorry, it’s so boring. I didn’t try it with my eyes closed (I was afraid that would have made a real spectacle!) I’m not sure that was what you were looking for, but it did seem to get easier. (I spared you looking at all the times I did it)

Janie Peirce

Yes, it did seem easier to stay straight but I posted my FC & send below so I’m anxious to see if you think I improved my line…I’m pretty sure you’ll say I dipped into her path though…

We went through all of the exercises again today. I did have to give an additional “right here” cue for both the push and landing side BC. We do layer jumps, so she doesn’t think twice about moving forward while I am on the other side of a jump. My timing on the LSBC is better – I can turn and see her take off over the jump and it worked much better. Also, I walked through each sequence first and had an “AHA!” moment when I found myself wandering into her path. After doing several runs, I tried the… Read more »

Daisy, please excuse construction noise!

Hi Daisy, Well I screwed this up again. I rented the ring today so that I could film lesson 2 but apparently the ones that I didn’t want to film got filmed and the good ones didn’t get recorded. I have the ring again on Monday morning so I can redo these then also. This one is just one with the front cross. Not our best. By now Piper was tired and distracted as one person kept coming in and out periodically. Very distracting when the ring is quiet and empty. Sorry for the bad technology again. I couldn’t get… Read more »

Hi Daisy, Here’s one video with front crosses and I believe one with a blind for lesson two. The ring rental was messed up and two of us were booked at the same time so I only had 1/2 an hour so set up only a couple of jumps to get to videotaping more quickly. Piper had two days of showing this weekend so she tired quickly of running through the tunnel. 🙂

Jenni Young

Hi Daisy I failed hard on this one, I think I can see what I’m doing wrong after going back and watching your demo video… I will have to go and try it again this week.

Jenni Young

Thank you Daisy after watching your demo I realised it must have been my motion towards the jump.

Thanks for the informative analysis Daisy. Well said. Yes, I review your video ( Fig. 6 ) and I recognize my mistake.
