    Hi Sarah!
    So I forgot to say in the exercises, that I’ve been doing set points with lyric before these drills, as you suggested.
    Also, after the first go with her I decided to wrap the jump at the end (jump 10 😀) as I think practising collection is probably not a bad idea for her at the moment! Hope that’s ok?!
    I was very happy with both their rear crosses – didn’t realise they had such a good understanding!

    Hi Sarah, Mod 6. I’m not sure if my rear X is actually a rear X? What is the difference between a reverse spin turn and a Yako? turn? Is it which way the dog turns after taking the jump?
    Thanks Krys

    I could see that turning the dog to the inside wing was not a good path

    Sarah, at 3:30 on the demonstration video, you have your dog turn to the outside (to his right). I don’t understand the turn that you are using. Did you say “Apple turn”? It looks to me like the dog should have turned to the left. You are looking over your left shoulder as the dog approaches jump #7. Why did he jump to the right?

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      Jaakko turn. Essentially, turning against the dog instead of with the dog to create a tighter turn. You don’t have to do the Jaakko, you can turn with your dog (post turn) but for those that do use these types of turns, it’s a decent spot for one.

      This is somewhat of a trained cue. But also, the position is important. If I were rearing there, 1) I wouldn’t blind and then rear, 2) I would be putting pressure on the dog’s line on approach, not right at the jump.
