Teach Your Hortaya Borzaya to Jump for AgilityThis blog is concerning teaching your Hortaya Borzaya jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “How many jumps is best to start with?” You can never have enough solo jumps to teach agility. One good starting place is 4 jumps. This is the least quantity of jumps recommended.

Teaching the Hortaya Borzaya jumping: Begin with 4

You can teach your Hortaya Borzaya a plethora of skills, drills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will allow you to work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can practice on a “box” with your jumps and work on handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Hortaya Borzaya jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Hortaya Borzaya or you can handle from within the box. Your jumps could be setup in a horizontal line, so you can practice threadles and serpentines.

Teach a Hortaya Borzaya Eight Jumps

Take the next logical step and get 8 jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with 1 introductory jump. You’ve now multiplied your routines that you can practice with your Hortaya Borzaya. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You could even setup your jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the circumference of the circle. This pattern also allows you to train a variety of skills.

Teach the Hortaya Borzaya Double and Triple Jumps

The next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could set 2 or three solo 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 many Hortaya Borzayas run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Hortaya Borzaya is not equipped for it, and bang, down goes the bar.
