    Jennifer, I like the front crosses you discussed as a possibility. Your idea of front crossing before the weaves is awesome, wouldn’t have that of that myself. I’m curious as to exactly where your position is for the fronts you’ve talked about. My instruction has been that for the most part one should be closer to the next obstacle than in the middle of the two obstacles. It’s a bit difficult see with the arrows exactly where you are when you are crossing. Is my thinking wrong?

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      Where I am between two obstacle when I cross depends mostly on two things: 1) where I am gong next and 2) what the desired jumping effort is. The farther downstream you FC, the farther ahead you will get but you are giving up some control on the landing of the jump. If you stay closer to the jump when you cross you will control the jumping effort but will risk not getting downstream to where you want/need to be.

      For example, between 4-5 I will place my FC closer to 5 in order to make sure I get downstream for my running aframe and into the tunnel discrimination. You can see in the video that I then get not-so-great turns off of 4. If I had stayed back at 4 I would get a better turn but might have then been too far behind.

    Wow wow wow have I got a lot to learn.😊

  • Collene says:

    What about a BC between 6 and 7 for the side change? Too hard to get there with a running A frame?

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      This was definitely an option. If I was to cross between 6-7, I’d do a blind. And many people did do a BC after the aframe. I try not to front cross when the dog isn’t turning. For me, I like the FC after 4 to help block the off course at 12.
