Andys one to one
Andy met me as arranged and during the skills health check said he'd love to learn to jump/drop.
As usual I methodically built him through the pumping, un weighting techniques before moving onto the drop technique. Andy was peculiar in that he listened and executed the task perfectly 1st time but it then broke down and I had to build him back up. This happened with each technique but each time we got a solid result, ensuring it's uptake.
We moved through the drop and jump technique and then onto cornering and linking all the techniques together on a trail.
each run grew more and more fluid and controlled as confidence grew and commitment showed.
We ended the day as tiredness started to show but smiles were still beaming.
awesome riding Andy!
