Thanks for sharing. I enjoy a peek into your strategizing as well as watching the runs themselves. You do such a terrific job staying out ahead! Would you call the push at 5:45 a “push on the flat”? What dictates your choice of arms? Do you ever do this when you are alongside or slightly behind your dog? I know in an ideal world one is always ahead on a push, but my reality is that I often fall behind on the kinds of long lines in these courses, although all those sends to tunnels might give me a fighting chance….

    Sure, it’s a push on the flat, or maybe a landing side push. But yes, it’s happening on the flat after the jump for sure 🙂 As for putting my outside arm up, that’d be because I was slightly behind my dog and needed to push him away from me. My ability to DO that diminishes as I fall behind his cheek/shoulder, so the outside arm was a bit of an insurance move 🙂 If I’d been further ahead I wouldn’t have needed it BUT I may have risked pushing too early and pushing Frodo to the backside of the penultimate jump. 🙂

I haven’t seen the video but was there motion toward the dog? Sounds like a half rear cross 🙂

    Yes, there was, and yes, it ended up being a sort of half rear cross 😉

    Nope, not too late. You need to sign up for access to these videos and then make sure to watch on a supported device (laptop or desktop).
