Gee, now I'm sounding like the Honey Badger!!! G
Nettle is doing well on her weaves,
and I'm sure I 'could' add the second set at this point.
I'm going to wait however, until I get the footwork I want.
The poles she's using in this sequence are 24".
The 2 X 2's I use, are 22".
USDAA still allows 22" poles, so I want to be
sure she understands how to handle the difference.
It's surprising, or maybe not, how that 2" can make a difference.
Anyway, back to Nettle's footwork. I want her to one stride her poles. I think this type of striding is more efficient and faster. Nettle is about the same size as Mad Dog, (a bit over 19") and Mad single stepped her poles, thus I don't see any reason Nettle can't. Structurally, she is very nice, so I'll put a plan in place to 'get what I want'!
How? Well, I'm going to go out and dig around in my 'old' equipment to see what I can find. I know I have at least 2 sets of 6 poles at different spacings, 18" and 20". The plan is to dig out the 20" later today, and work with them until I get the one striding I want. Then put her back on the 22 or 24s" to see if she can maintain it, before I move to second set of 6 poles, and then 12. My feeling is, why increase the level of difficulty (multiple poles), before I get the striding I want at 6.
Let the games continue!!!
