This post is about teaching your Griffon Nivernais jumping for agility. Often we are asked, “What number of jumps should I begin with?” You can never have enough single jumps to learn agility. One suitable starting point is four jumps. This is the absolute minimum quantity of jumps recommended.
How to Teach a Griffon Nivernais jumping: Begin with Four
You can teach your Griffon Nivernais a variety of skills, drills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will let you work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and practice 270 degree jumps, collection, and handling. You can teach your Griffon Nivernais jumping right and left. You can be outside the box and send your Griffon Nivernais or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be staged in a lateral row, so that you could practice threadles and serpentines.
Teach a Griffon Nivernais Eight Jumps
Take the next logical step and work on 8 jumps. Now you can setup two boxes with one introductory jump. Now you’ve multiplied your exercises that you can practice with your Griffon Nivernais. Your jump grids can be of recommended size and quantity of jumps. You can also position your jumps in a circle with the jump bars normal to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also enables you to train a variety of drills.
Teach Your Griffon Nivernais Double and Triple Jumps
Your 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 extremely valuable to practice. We’ve seen several Griffon Nivernaiss run a flawless course and the final obstacle is a triple and the Griffon Nivernais is not equipped for it, and bang, down comes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Griffon Nivernaiss.
