Hi, Daisy, here is our video of the blended FC We did two sessions of these. In the first one (trials 1-4) Dizzy seemed to be rather comfortable with this drill. Later we did another session where I mixed it up with blended FC to BC (Figure 9). Here Dizzy seemed to have some problems with discrimation between these two (from trial 5 on). You can see that sometimes his wrapping wing #3 was not so tight as he’s usually doing. Instead he wanted to come to my right hand and I had to add more help (verbal and hand… Read more »

You’re welcome @Daisy Peel, thank YOU for taking time for such a long and excellent feedback, I know you’re very busy these days 🙂 Daisy, I know it’s not easy to see (that’s why I changed camera position so you have a better view facing jump #3), but Dizzy also came in very wide at #3 in the first few trials. I thought, I could make it easier for him by positioning myself further away from wing #3 (thus making the gap wider for him), but reading your comment I understand that I was totally wrong and cuing more extension… Read more »

Whenever you get to it. Good luck!

As I mentioned in the FC with collection, I am getting these two confused and I don’t think this is correct either. Sigh. I don’t have internet at the field but I amy need to start looking at the video on my phone, I printed out the PDF, but for some reason I am just having trouble with these two.

Hi Daisy, I am thinking I am not moving through this course very timely and was just wanting to check for sure about what the last day of the course is? I love the course and want to get as much out of it as possible. Ashe is young so I don’t want to do a ton of repetitions plus he just doesn’t like to drill that well. I am thinking I may need to plan for just observing some of the sequences if I can’t get through them all. Would you ever consider offering an extension of the course,… Read more »

By extension, I meant a new registration and class fee-?

PamAnthony

So I felt slightly better about this one, but especially in the first two I am backing up too much, thinking I needed to get closer to far wing of jump three with the first FC?

Daisy, I redid this exercise to make sure I’m making direct eye contact 2-3, as you asked.

Shenna Lemche

This was better than I thought it would be. Timing not great on the first FC and drifting for the second but by the last rep I was almost on time?

Hi Daisy, Here’s another video from this morning. We did the front cross with the step back so that she stayed on my left side. She’s doing really well reading these different movements now that we’ve been practice. You’ve helped us a lot and it showed in our showing this weekend. She got both Open Jumper Q’s and is now in Excellent. 🙂

Daisy – I am familiar with this move and didn’t have problems like we did with the FC/collection cue. It IS very important to be past the jump like you were saying. I like it because I can watch Darcy through the jump/turn AND when I move for the next jump, it’s much clearer to her that she should not take that off course jump. The only “issue” right now is making sure I AM at/past the jump so that I don’t have to take those little steps to get out of her way. When she is running at speed,… Read more »

lisaagraham

Yes, fall behind or mistakenly cue the other side of the jump she just took. And then have to listen to her fuss at me for making a mistake. 🙂 I’m kinda half way through my rehab on my hip – still not “allowed” to run/jar/pound on my hip/leg. But, I will try again a little further back and just make some larger steps to get where I need to go. For now, I am trying hard to get our start line stay back … it kinda fell apart those last few months that we were trialing. BTW – Darcy… Read more »

Hi Daisy not sure I really got this it felt a little awkward but he did read it ok I think, I wasn’t sure he would get it.

Jenni Young
