Practice your poles! By Tania Chadwick
We have weave pole drills on tap for this month. We are using two sets of six poles to work more entrances, but you could certainly could set this up with one set of 12 with the two jumps.
Do one pass with shoulder turns, the next with front crosses, and maybe even a blind cross if it makes sense.
Note the changes for the jumps for each figure. Figure 2's jumps are a bit closer compared to those in figure 1 and the jumps are angled for figure 3.
