I’ve created four small space exercises based on the opening jump layout of my International Flair! Seminar Course from a couple weekends ago. These sequences let you work on Pushing to the Back Side Back Side/Back Side JumpHandling the Quad Back Side - Patrick Bucher Course/VideoThe Connection Between Threadles and Back SidesBack Side of Jump Handling Combinations - Video of a jump, Jump Wraps Handling 360 Jump Wraps aka "Over and Over" - VideoJump Wrap Handling TipsJump Wrap/WrapJump Wrap Handling - With Video, Serpentines Serpentine SequenceSerpentine Handling Techniques, and Threadles Threadle SequenceMary Ellen Barry on Threadle HandlingThe Connection Between Threadles and Back SidesTraditional Threadle HandlingSingle Sided Threadle Handling.

With TOPS giving Meeker an OK to do a little more jumping this week I’ll try to work on them myself and maybe shoot a video or two. Then I’ll post some of my handling solutions later this week.

Hope you try it and have fun!

Kind of went over the two sets of 16-18 jumps recommended for Meeker’s rehab today… and ran sequence #1 three times with different handling options. I also put the bars on the ground and tried it with 8 month old Flyer. Its the first “agility” practice we’ve done in weeks… He is also just getting over a bad UTI, I was afraid for him on Tuesday night, he looks great now. In the video he is a little tired but follows my handling like a pro.

Here is video for sequence #1:
