Breaks in the Course

Marj,
Good post! I'd think you could consider another break at jump 18. It looks like the tunnel is a possible discrimination challenge and/or the angle to jump 19 is possibly > 30 degrees.

That break would also support my "gut feel" handling that I'd end up changing sides on my dog to assist the selection of jump 19 as the next obstacle. So I'd either Front Cross coming out of the tunnel/over jump 17 or, more likely, Rear Crosss on the take off of jump 18.

Just my 2 cents...

That's sounds right. As I have it the dog has a long stretch without any specific handler guidance, and the jump angle exposes the tunnel.
