Why Jump when you can smash through them?

Last night had some high points and some low points. Second run of the night, Fin cuts the corner on a jump and her right hip and leg catch on the standard (Laura says, I said, "Here!" and that could have done it). The entire jump came down on top of her.

Not pretty. I tried to make light so Fin didn't get freaked out, but it really scared me. She puts so much of herself into agility, I feel I need to keep her safe.

Of course the one jump wasn't the only jump she smashed. A few other times she was just leaping early (tire and triple). She was having a good time...but very egdy ... reminded me of a teenage kid on a snowboard who keeps crashing and saying, "I'm OK, I'm OK....let's do that AGAIN!"

It's not nice to freak out the mom!

So today I'm taking a page out of Susan Garretts one jump video and Fin and I are going back to basics. I will also pull out a jumping grid and work on her adjusting her stride.

Kids fall down, kids get up. Weebles wabble but they don't fall done.

You want a dog or you want a weeble?!!!!
