Gate Circle

Yesterday, I set up a gate circle using my six gates and six hoops.  I was pleased with how well Willie did.  This evening we went out and played around with it some more, and he did even better, although he still doesn't quite get the concept of a rear cross.  Here's video from yesterday.


While we were out in the field, I came up with this set-up to work on send distance.  Obstacle 3 is a traffic cone, and as Willie becomes more comfortable driving out and around it, I will move it further away from 2 and 4 while I remain behind the line.

This setup also lets me work on leading out and cuing Willie to come to my left or right side when released.  I can also practice a front cross between 4 and 5.
