    I’ve found when I front cross between 8 & 9 that I go deeper than I should (toward the tunnel) as I know Thumper and Rocket will likely jump long and I don’t want them behind me. I need to remember to bend their line to where I want them to go instead of accommodating and accentuating the behavior by my going further than necessary. It was fun!

    Here is some work on this one. As predicted the 8-9 sequence was difficult for us.

  • says:

    Here I have tried two options. The first one felt better for me (without front cross)

    and with front cross:

    ran the challenge sequences this morning. In the first try of the sequence with a front cross on the landing side of 8, I did exactly what you said not to do (headed toward the left wing of 9 and Copper Sun read it as a back side):
    tried it again with better success:

    Next I sent Copper Sun around the right wing of 5 and picked him up on my right to push to 6. That took a couple of tries (no film) to get that right, and then still as you will see he doesn’t know where to go when he lands off 6:

    this felt like the best choice for us – a send around the left wing of 5 into a serp:
    I liked this option too for the nice line it created for Copper Sun on his approach to six.

    will look forward to hearing from you!

    Thanks again Sarah! Really love the SBS. I felt that the “S” turn was faster for him, but the SBS really drives that home!

    Here is our video for the Nested Challenge. Poor Kailani was tired because I kept messing up and sending her to the wrong side of jump 9.

  • Nikki says:

    Here is our go at the challenge sequence.

  • says:

    Definitely most comfortable with the blinds or rearing the tunnel. The front was awkward for me. On the challenge, our “here here” at a jump is not as good as at a tunnel so I would opt to do the backside as I’m fairly confident of success

  • Tomoko says:

    I used 3m straight tunnel.
    As you compared, S-es for #3 was faster and nicer line.

  • says:

    Flash nested challenge exercise 3. I had trouble getting a tight turn 8 to 9 and 9 to 10.
