Last Day of USDAA Nationals.

We’re home now from Nationals. This morning I did the European jumpers course. Enzo did really well, just had one really wide turn where he actually ran out of the ring and around a post for the ring before coming back. I didn’t decelerate before the 180 turn. oops! Tooney went off course again! She definitely suffered from tunnel sucking this weekend. Don’t know what’s going on with her but I’m really happy with how Enzo was running with the exception of his contacts of course. It’s just bad timing that he decided to start blowing them the week before nationals! He was really fast and focused all weekend and paid attention on some pretty tough courses. I just need to keep working on my timing with turning cues to get him tighter. He did great for a 2.5 year old at his first nationals!

Oh and we also did a couple of private lessons with Melissa Heeter and got some interesting tips from her and some drills to work on.

  1. Melissa is a great teacher and probably gave you some good tips. Gary took some seminars from her when he first got into the sport and another private lesson when she came down here a few years ago. Congrats for the small successes! I can’t wait to see what Enzo accomplishes!
