6 Weave Poles in park - September 2009

This is day 2 on six poles. She did six more naturally in the yard at home. But i can only use this park on saturdays and sundays - all other days include about 200 kids as distraction training and she isn't ready for that yet!

Bringing It All Together - September 2009

ok. so things are not perfect. we are troubleshooting dropped bars - sometimes she drops them with her front end. sometimes the rear end. front end appears because he jumps first without a set point. rear end could be watching me (or ball).... need more insight into this... more video too. but weave poles - up to 12. mostly on the first time. contacts. weak nose touch but she does move towards the end contact without me (independance!) so all is coming together. she loves it too!
