This article is concerning teaching your Pachon Navarro to jump for agility. We are often asked, “How many jumps should I begin with?” You can never have too many single jumps to practice agility. A good starting point is four jumps. This is the absolute minimum number of jumps that we suggest.
Teaching a Pachon Navarro jumping: Begin with Four
You can teach your Pachon Navarro many skills, drills, and exercises with four jumps. 4 jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Pachon Navarro jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Pachon Navarro or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral row, so you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach the Pachon Navarro Eight Jumps
Go to the next logical step and get eight jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now increased your routines that you can try with your Pachon Navarro. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You could also setup the jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also enables you to train a variety of drills.
Teaching a Pachon Navarro Double and Triple Jumps
Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position 2 or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to work on. We’ve seen many Pachon Navarros run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Pachon Navarro is not equipped for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Pachon Navarros.
