Blind Cross to Ketschker on Dana Pike Course

Meeker, Flyer and I were at The Farm for Dana Pike's class the other night and the opening of her course had an interesting Back Side The Connection Between Threadles and Back SidesHandling the Quad Back Side - Patrick Bucher Course/VideoBack Side/Back Side JumpBack Side of Jump Handling Combinations - Video Jump Wrap Jump Wrap Handling TipsJump Wrap Handling - With VideoJump Wrap/Wrap. After running hard for a couple days last week at a Silas Boogk seminar I was ready to take risks and go for the fastest way I could think of to handle the opening. After some thought it looked like a good place to use a Blind Cross blended into a Ketschker.

I put color coded handler/dog icons and some description in the following diagram of Dana’s course to help demonstrate this handling approach:

It was a blast and worked nicely - I was just fast enough to pull it off and make it to the landing of 6 to Scoop Meeker over the jump. It is a lot of fun to run a course and go for it!
