Hi, @Daisy Peel, glad to hear that you and lil’ big Frodo are back home and safe and recovering from really hard competition and AWC weekends!

I tried the same thing on a few different areas of the jumps that I set up. Interesting “problem” now – I did the RC and instead of moving forward towards the other jump, I turned to do the drill again … and that’s when Darcy turned and took the jump behind me … like we did in the one of the BC drills in the previous lesson. Hmmmm … now I will need to make… Read more »


Here is our RC on the flat work. At least we didn’t have to go through the gap?he dropped the bar a couple of times, I didn’t really feel I was in his way?


I think I understand he needs to turn more, take #4 straight on rather than slicing away? I took the foundations on the flat course, so I will see if I still have access look at that.

Hi Daisy, here is our rear cross on the flat I had to teach it first before the exercise as he hadn’t done it before now.

Oh for Pete’s sake, I knew I had to go over that middle jump! Don’t know what I was thinking the funny thing is I thought it felt a little odd at the time 😐 Another one I will redo Thank you
