Practice & Competition

Weave

To successfully negotiate the weave without touching the cones/markers

How do I do this obstacle ?

The weave is usually entered through the equines OFF SIDE shoulder unless otherwise stated

Weave equine/handler together

Weave equine only - the handler to remain walking outside of the obstacle directing the equine through and around the cones/markers


Where do I start

An easy obstacle to construct and negotiate

Practice of this obstacle definitely does "make perfect"

Practice of maintaining your leading position and soft relaxed rope contact is vital


Construction

5x (unless otherwise stated) cones or markers

Think about

Staying focussed - your thoughts need to be ahead of your equines to help keep his thoughts focussed
