hi Anna Here is my “whats your angle” video. I went ahead and did this even though you haven’t reviewed my “are you paying attention” video yet. I submitted it 2 or 3 days ago and wanted to move on.
As you can see at about 16 seconds in I asked for a right with an extreme angle. He did go right but was confused about which wing I was asking for. After 3 attempts at that angle I made it easier for him. In this particular training session that seemed to be the only thing that he didn’t understand. He didn’t seem to have much an issue with these angles even with our first training session. The one I send here was about our 4th training session with this exercise.

    Some very good stuff here! Watching your video, I think you should add a low jumping bar, so that he can discriminate between the backside and the right/left more easily. It will change the picture for him a bit, so that he can understand that right means jumping and then turning around the wing and backside means going around the wing and then jumping.
    I hope this makes sense.

    All other turns and angles looked great!

Yes this does make sense to me. I’ll give it a try. Thanks

    Very nice! The soft turns look great 🙂 In the next session, focus a bit more on the hard turns (wraps) away from you, as those were still a bit difficult for him.
    Also, mix up both directions a bit more, so that he doesn’t fall into a pattern of only turning into one direction.

We focused on harder turns this time.

Working the harder angles again the next day. After doing 2 reps in 1 direction, he sometimes has difficulty going in the other direction, especially on these tougher approaches. But I feel he’s progressing nicely and his understanding is improving with more practice!

    Nice progress in both videos! I do think it helps their understanding to switch between directions and angles quite a bit. Very good session 🙂 Keep up sessions like this and he will have quite solid understanding soon 😉
