Teach Your Magyar Agar to Jump for AgilityThis article is concerning how to teach your Magyar Agar to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to begin with?” You can’t ever have too many solo jumps to practice agility. One good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the least quantity of jumps recommended.

Teaching a Magyar Agar jumping: Begin with 4

You can teach a Magyar Agar a number of exercises, skills, and drills with 4 jumps. 4 jumps will allow you to work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and practice collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Magyar Agar jumping right and left. You can be out of the box and send your Magyar Agar or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be positioned in a lateral line, so you could practice threadles and serpentines.

Teach a Magyar Agar Eight Jumps

Go to the next step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can position two boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now increased your routines that you can practice with your Magyar Agar. Your jump grids can be of typical size and quantity of jumps. You can also setup the 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 work on a variety of skills.

Teaching Your Magyar Agar Double and Triple Jumps

Your next level is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set two or three single jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to work on. We’ve seen several Magyar Agars run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Magyar Agar is not ready for it, and bang, down comes the bar.
