It was a small trial so I didn't get a chance to take many hikes. Always seemed to be doing something or other. Sat we had some really great runs. Got the gamble but ran out of time :( Standard, close but no bananas. Fin crashed a jump in Standard and then was fearful of the spreads the rest of the weekend. Poor thing. But Sunday, she blasted through her courses like a freight train coming home with two first places!
Sunday gamble was a good one. I executed it as planned and felt so great as she jumped that last jump and knew we had it in the bag!
In the opening, she started to go around the double and I moved out of position and she redirected over the double...but...that put me way behind. Finnie made up for herself by getting out and doing that tire. Good Girl! The rest of the run was me just trying to keep up.
I had high hopes for GP, but I faded away too quickly after 3 and just pulled her off of #4. Couple other mistakes, but some really nice stuff as well.
Things we will be working on this week before the regionals are:
- Contacts: still getting a running contact when she is super excited. Need to go the extra mile to proof them.
- Spreads: Fin has spreads in her future. All week we will be working on spreads. Spreads...more spreads
- Weaves!!! OMG she hit EVERY weave entry I tossed at her. There were some really tough ones.
