More Bonus Line Practice

This morning, I set up this jumpers course using hoops:

Looking at the course map, I thought problem areas of this course would be:
  • Getting Belle to turn from 9 to 10. However, once I had the course set up, I realized that even from the 20-pt line, #10 wasn't all that far away.
  •  Getting past the three off-course possibilities on the way from 10 to 11.
  •  Turning Belle from 13 to 14 and getting her to continue on to 16.
When we actually ran the course, I found that most of my handling mistakes occurred when Belle was running along the outer edges of the course (1-9) and I failed to keep pressure on her path.

  1. We haven't done any bonus line work for the longest time... Luke would really struggle with the 13-16 sequence, as sending straight away has never been our strong point (despite working on this specific skill!). This looks like a fun one to try -- Very nice job on your last run!
