I coached Sophie a couple of years ago and she wanted to return to work on jumping and brought along Melanie to join in the session too.

I put them through my skills check to see any physical errors in their riding and needed to correct that before we could move onto techniques. Drops and style in the air were on the menu and we moved from there to jumping a 6ft tabletop and they used their mental skills to ride the 6ft gap jump too!

After a break I demonstrated linking berms together and jumping and the girls followed suit. They were soon linking multiple jumps together to work on flying further. More gap jumps next, and they rode two berms and a 7ft gap jump and also a 9ft gap jump. By the end of the session they were flowing through turns and flying higher and further than ever before.

I am buzzing. High5!
