This post is concerning teaching your Cimarron Uruguayo jumping for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have too many single jumps to learn agility. One good starting point is four jumps. This is the least quantity of jumps recommended.
How to Teach a Cimarron Uruguayo jumping: Begin with 4
You can teach the Cimarron Uruguayo many drills, skills, and exercises with four jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and practice 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Cimarron Uruguayo jumping right and left. You could be out of the box and send your Cimarron Uruguayo or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be setup in a horizontal line, so that you can practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Cimarron Uruguayo 8 Jumps
Take the next logical step and get 8 jumps. Now you can position two boxes with 1 introductory jump. Now you’ve multiplied the number of exercises that you can work on with your Cimarron Uruguayo. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and number of jumps. You can even setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This setup also enables you to develop a variety of drills.
Teaching Your Cimarron Uruguayo Double and Triple Jumps
The next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could chain 2 or 3 solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really helpful to work on. We’ve seen many Cimarron Uruguayos run a perfect course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Cimarron Uruguayo is not ready to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Cimarron Uruguayos.
