This article is about teaching your Briquet Griffon Vendeen to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can’t ever have enough single jumps to learn agility. One suitable starting point is 4 jumps. This is the minimum quantity of jumps suggested.
How to Teach the Briquet Griffon Vendeen to jump: Start with Four
You can teach a Briquet Griffon Vendeen many drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. 4 jumps will let you develop on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Briquet Griffon Vendeen jumping left and right. You can be outside the box and send your Briquet Griffon Vendeen or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be staged in a lateral line, so that you could practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Briquet Griffon Vendeen 8 Jumps
Take the next step and get 8 jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve multiplied the number of exercises that you can work on with your Briquet Griffon Vendeen. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and number of jumps. You could even position your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This setup also enables you to develop a variety of drills.
Teach a Briquet Griffon Vendeen Double and Triple Jumps
Your next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You can position two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially beneficial to work on. We’ve seen many Briquet Griffon Vendeens run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Briquet Griffon Vendeen is not equipped to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Briquet Griffon Vendeens.
