Tuesday 31st January, lunge over poles

Posted on February 3, 2017 at 6:40 AM

Lunging straight on. He was working energetically and fine. I put three poles down for him. I had the middle pole up on one side from the start while the other two were on the ground, and he went over them in a grand manner immediately! Then I lifted the two up on one side as well. He had no problems with those wither on the right hand. I put the first pole back down on the ground and lifted the middle one to a cavaletti. It was a little difficult for him in the beginning, but he soon went over in a good manner. Left hand he had more difficulties. The ground poles went fine, but as I lifted the poles it became more difficult. He finds the approach to the first one always more difficult on the left for some reason, and if he gets the first pole wrong, the rest are a bit difficult as well. So, we had a couple funny moments with him jumping over the two latter poles… but he got it when I made it a little easier by lowering both the outer poles and leaving the mid pole only up.

Hard work, but he did it splendidly.
