Exercise 3 from Tracy Sklenar's Article

I'm nothing if not stubborn.  When I realized I hadn't walked the exercises as Ms. Sklenar* had created them, I was determined to do at least one of them correctly before the sun set.
Here is the course as designed.  Notice that it requires the dog be sent to the back side of jumps 4, 5, 6 and 7.

I was hung up on how fast the dog can travel from the #2 tunnel exit to the backside of #4 by wrapping left around #4 to get to there.  When I finally decided to front cross on the landing side of #3 and direct Belle through the gap between #4 and #5, the run went much smoother.
