Hi @Daisy Peel, may I ask for some help with this drill, please? According to the description and picture in the pdf I would have executed this exercise just like you did. So I am a bit confused about Linda’s comment concerning the importance of the correct positioning of your feet. What exactly does that mean, feet facing “forward”? I can’t really tell from the video but I assume, your feet were in parallel to jump #3. Should they rather be facing TOWARDS #3 whilst your shoulders are still facing the dog (i.e. facing #2)? From the picture in the… Read more Β»


Thank you, Daisy, this helps a lot! So you delay the rotation of the feet until after the dog has commited to #3 and you have bypassed #4? This makes sense, but now I’m really confused about the ‘only a few degrees of rotation to your left’ though πŸ™‚ To complete the FC I HAVE to rotate mmy feet about 270 degree after cueing #3 if I’m not supposed to start that rotation earlier …. I think I really have to try it out and submit the video for further feedback to fully understand this drill. Thank you for taking… Read more Β»


Thank you @Daisy Peel, I think now I understood. Sorry for being so confused πŸ˜‰

So this is our video of this drill. I only did one trial for you to comment, to see if I got it right this time πŸ™‚

Pretty sure I’m going to be guilty of cueing too much collection too! Too long facing my dog.


Hi Daisy. Here is our front cross with collection cue.


Hi, @Daisy Peel,

In case you didn’t see it (I know you have a very busy schedule and are doing a great job coaching so many pupils whilst preparing yourself and Frodo for competitions πŸ™‚ ), here is once again our submission for this drill:

Thank you Daisy Peel, I think now I understood. Sorry for being so confused wink

So this is our video of this drill. I only did one trial for you to comment, to see if I got it right this time smile

Thank you very much!


Hi, @Daisy Peel, and thank you very much for taking the time to watch and comment whilst being so busy yourself! Yes, the idea of this one as basically being the same as the one in figure 6 (only closer to #3) helps a lot. I also understand that in this case I will use right arm to cue the jump AND to draw Dizzy around the gap. But I still have no idea HOW to do this whilst my feet are facing forward toward #4. You can call me chicken again πŸ™‚ I will delay this drill till someone… Read more Β»


I’m looking forward to these videos, they will be very helpful, thanks πŸ™‚


Daisy, sorry if you already did this, but I cannot find it.


There is only one example as I feel silly saying this but I started getting really confused about this one and the blended FC. I am pretty sure this isn’t correct, but couldn’t figure out how to fix it.


Not sure why this is so hard for me, doesn’t seem like it should be. I don’t feel like I got a lot of collection and same problem with the coming through the gap.


I’m still not sure I understand this one?

Hi Daisy! So glad you’re getting ready to kick butt so I can catch up! πŸ˜€

This one is definitely tricky. I know I overfaced but was still not getting great collection because late. Poor Moo.


Hello Daisy,
herewith 2 trials we had for this sequence:
Trial 1 :

and Trial 2 :


Hi Daisy,

we did try it again :


This was a tough one for us as well. For Darcy, the opposite arm is the “stop sign” so I pulled her off the jump several times. So, I added a jump cue. We got that but she went for the off course jump (I think I wasn’t turning soon enough). So, I added a “left, left” cue (our way to get a tighter turn) AND tried to turn sooner. That helped her turn towards me BUT if I waited too long to move towards the next jump, she would turn and take the off course anyway. Gaaahhhhh. This morning… Read more Β»

Daisy, here is our front cross with collection.

Daisy, here are some more tries. Not sure I understand yet but if any of these are getting close enough that you can explain what I’m lacking, maybe that would help.

Janie Peirce


Daisy, more tries! I appreciate your detailed instructions. Thanks.

Janie Peirce

Daisy, thanks! Just didn’t make sense to me until your explanation.

Jenni Young

Hi Daisy, these were the best I could do with Blu, the ones before these he actually didn’t come through the gap at all and took the other jump, and I have put one in where I put a blind in just to get him off the other jump.

Hello Daisy, The rainy season really affects my training program.

Thank you very much for the analysis of my run. I recognize my fault. I dig dip with your video ( fig 7) and it really amazed me. I got your point. I’m excited to practice with Carter later. ( it’s still 4 am here, hahaha.).
Although I’m still in lesson 2 with your program, I got a valuable tip that will definitely transform my old handling habit.
