Practice Sequences Based on Stefanie Semkat's 2022 Polish Open Large Agility

06 Feb 2022Steve Schwarz

Stefanie Semkat’s 2022 Polish Open Large Agility course had some challenging handling sequences! I created a smaller layout, with the same spacing/alignment of her three middle jumps, and came up with three sequences so we could practice her challenges at home.

Here’s her original course.

Think about how you’d handle this course and then check out these videos on Facebook:

There were a lot of challenges, but I was most interested in the challenges around the three jumps up the middle. Here’s my smaller space layout with those three jumps aligned and spaced like her original course. Always check equipment distances/locations for safety! You can always spread out the obstacles if you have more space: just some more running on your part!

Sequence 1 tries to replicate Stefanie’s challenges around the middle jumps, similar threadle slice/wraps, and a similar weave entry/jump discrimination:

Sequence 2 has those same challenges along with some additional Threadle Mary Ellen Barry on Threadle HandlingSingle Sided Threadle HandlingThe Connection Between Threadles and Back SidesTraditional Threadle HandlingThreadle Sequence challenges:

This sequence is the easiest of the three with some of Stefanie’s challenges and a Serpentine Serpentine Handling TechniquesSerpentine Sequence and a Threadle just because 😝 (you could always change the side of 17 if you’d rather Serpentine again).

I hope you’ll set these up and conquer the challenges!
