This post is about teaching a Mucuchies to jump for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I begin with?” You can never have too many single jumps to teach agility. One good starting place is four jumps. This is the minimum quantity of jumps recommended.
Teaching a Mucuchies to jump: Start with Four
You can teach the Mucuchies many exercises, skills, and drills with 4 jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and work on 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Mucuchies jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Mucuchies or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be setup in a lateral line, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach the Mucuchies 8 Jumps
Go to the next step and practice eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 starter jump. You’ve now increased your exercises that you can work on with your Mucuchies. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You can even position the jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This pattern also allows you to develop a variety of skills.
Teach the Mucuchies Double and Triple Jumps
The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Mucuchiess run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Mucuchies is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Mucuchiess.
