Attempt #2 and another NQ. I'm still thrilled at how much fun he is having in the ring! I think Lance did a bit better yesterday even though we were closer to qualifying today. Video:
Forgier than yesterday. Took a step after I left him on the stand but other than that he did great.
The pile was in the middle today so no looking at the open ring and no extra jumps! The first send was great and Lance confidently brought me back the right one. The 2nd send he doubted himself and mouthed a wrong one the few times before deciding on the correct one. But once again he brought them both back without stopping and looking me for reassurance!
#1 again. Nice job but he mouthed the glove as he sat in front of me. Lance almost never mouths objects in practice so this surprised me.
Again Lance moved as I left him and a little bit again during the exam. I would chalk it up to the extroidinary amount of pressure the judge was putting on all the teams during this exercise but since Lance did it yesterday and during our grad open runs I don't think that's the case.
Directed Jumping- NQ
Again Lance went to left corner of the ring but at least this time he didn't start to curl back to me and we were given the closest jump. The 2nd time he went to the same spot and then took the same jump. I had just started practicing off centered jumping in practice but haven't done enough of it I guess.
