Teach a Smalandsstovare To Jump for Agility

Teach Your Smalandsstovare to Jump for AgilityThis article is concerning how to teach your Smalandsstovare jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to teach agility. A good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps suggested.

How to Teach Your Smalandsstovare jumping: Begin with 4

You can teach the Smalandsstovare many exercises, drills, and skills with four jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and practice collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Smalandsstovare jumping left and right. You could be outside the box and send your Smalandsstovare or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps can be staged in a horizontal line, so you could practice threadles and serpentines.

Teach Your Smalandsstovare Eight Jumps

Take the next step and work on 8 jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with one starter jump. You’ve now increased the number of drills that you can work on with your Smalandsstovare. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You can even setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also enables you to develop a variety of drills.

Teaching the Smalandsstovare Double and Triple Jumps

The next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You could position two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is extremely helpful to work on. We’ve seen many Smalandsstovares run a clean course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Smalandsstovare is not equipped for it, and bang, down goes the bar.
