This morning we practiced the Dog Walk and Jumping in Extension.
The course started at the table (in a down) then two jumps into a ‘U’ shaped tunnel followed by the Dog Walk to the Manners Minder. I wanted to build up a much speed as possible approaching the Dog Walk.

Ice is extending nicely over the jumps but I think he can still go a lot quicker.
Times for each rep were:
