Xena's first CDX leg!
« on: July 24, 2011, 04:10:37 PM »
Xena and I went to all three days of the Susque-nango KC show this weekend.  It was a lot of fun and tons of learning. 

The first two days were close calls. Friday I learned I need to proof to the right on the ROH.  Saturday I got a reminder to give a clear, VISIBLE drop signal.  ;D   Heeling was also a process, starting out not hot and ending with pretty darn good... I just needed to get back up to the speed I walk in class.

Third time was a charm today.  Heeling was as close to class quality as we've ever been, my drop signal was visible with relaxed arm, her retrieves were great, and of course she loves the broad.

We've got a good list stuff to work on - consistency overall, but especially straighten fronts, no auto-finishes, tighter outside 8's, and transitions.  But it's all fine-tuning... so I'll start to spend a little more time training the GO/UD exercises while we continue polishing the foundations.
