Tally is just getting so good. Sigh. If not for bars, he would be awesome. Maybe I should try some NADAC, I hear they have those hoops thingies in place of a lot of jumps.
BUT, the issue is, although I am not learning a “system”, what I am learning, and what Tally is learning, is much different than what and how Hannah learned. So now when I run Hannah, things get awkward. I forget I have to raise up my offside arm to cue a serp. I forget that she doesn’t get backsides at all.
I brought her last night and for the jumpers course, it went jump to a backside jump. Tally had no problem with this setup. Hannah saw two jumps in a row and could not get her head around the fact she was supposed to go around the 2nd jump. I finally resorted to doing a full on slingshot start with her where I did a quick front cross and post turned he to the backside. It worked, but I don’t know if I would be able to figure that out at a trial!
So I was saying to my classmates that she is pretty much retired. She doesn’t know any of the new handling, I think she is measuring jumps a lot, but my classmates were all like “you can’t retire her, she is running great”. I don’t know. I do know that it is getting easier to run Tally.
