Tuesday's class

We were on our way out the door yesterday when we got the call that our class had been canceled due to weather! No, not again! We had freezing rain and some snow the day/night before but although our neighborhood streets were very icy, we assumed the main roads would be fine. Guess not.

Any way, back to those few nice days from last week (before everything was covered in snow yet again). We made a video of the 180 exercise from last week's class. It didn't go all that great - I was not very fast and mom's handling was not very good - but at least you can kind of see what the exercise was and we can remember it for practicing in the future.

Mom and I don't make fancy edited videos much any more - we just stick it up on YouTube - so here is what we tried to show you -

First we did the 180 with a backy uppy a couple times (mom didn't mean to do the rear cross or anything before the 180 but due to poor planning she was on the wrong side of me).

Then we tried the serpentine version.

Then we did a couple with double front crosses (my favorite).

In class we did a curved tunnel to the DW and then into the 180. At home we just used that straight tunnel but it didn't propel me forward like it should have.




Gotta zoom!

Sorry about your weather :( We're supposed to get some messy stuff over the next few days too. Ugh!

Ricky really reads you well. I could see him looking to the jump out in front of him, but he always turned to you and did the 180.

Aww that just sucks! I hate it when classes get canceled too.

Sorry to hear your class was cancelled. That stinks. We had the snow/ice thing here the other day. It didn't make for easy travel. Better to be safe!
Nice video. Keep up the good work!

That's no fun that the snow came back and you are stuck inside - well you just have to work on another amazing trick that we can all go ewwww and ahhhh over.

Will be so nice once spring arrives and we don't have to worry about all this weather anymore.

Sorry about the weather. Maybe it will get better soon. Its funny, if you arent moving when you release Ricky , he goes slow. But if you are moving , he goes much quicker. What would happen if you just cue the jump and run like heck?

Dawn said...

I love your jumps. Going to have to make Katie's dad build her some for this summer....

Oh no! I'm so tired of the snow and ice and cold weather, too. I hope you don't have any more cancellations!

Kathy said...
