This article is concerning teaching the Chippiparai to jump for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I start with?” You can never have too many solo jumps to practice agility. One suitable starting place is 4 jumps. This is the fewest quantity of jumps suggested.
Teaching the Chippiparai to jump: Start with 4
You can teach your Chippiparai many exercises, drills, and skills with 4 jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can setup a “box” with your jumps and work on collection, handling, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Chippiparai jumping left and right. You could be out of the box and send your Chippiparai or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be setup in a horizontal line, so you can practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach a Chippiparai 8 Jumps
Go to the next step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can position 2 boxes with 1 introductory jump. Now you’ve increased the number of routines that you can try with your Chippiparai. Your jump grids can be of suggested 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 circumference of the circle. This pattern also allows you to work on a variety of skills.
Teach a Chippiparai Double and Triple Jumps
Your next consideration is a double jump and a triple jump. You could position two or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, however having double and triple jumps in your course work is especially helpful to practice. We’ve seen many Chippiparais run a perfect course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Chippiparai is not equipped to do it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Chippiparais.
