Pinwheels at a distance

I set up a 5-obstacle sequence in the backyard today. It was a pinwheel (3 jumps in a circle), then a straight line to the mini-tunnel and then a tire straight after the tunnel. This was a great exercise for Mika because she doesn't really understand pinwheels at a distance. I handled at 15' lateral distance for the first rep. She almost went over the third jump in the pinwheel after jumping the first jump, but turned just in time and sent over the middle (correct) jump. Good girl! The next rep she knew exactly where to go. for the last rep I handled at a 20' distance, and she was perfect and very fast.



  1. Yay, Mika! That is cool that we were both practicing pinwheels!

  2. Yeah is it cool! :) Pinwheels are fun!

  3. Hmmm, pinwheels. That sure sounds intersting and you sure seem to enjoy doing it.
