Winged jumps
« on: December 23, 2015, 08:53:50 PM »
I haven't seen a winged jump on course for a long time (or possibly never).  Are wingless jumps the only jumps my dog is likely to encounter at a NADAC trial?

I would ask folks who trial in your area.  Champs are totally non-winged jumps.  But winged jumps are still legal and sometimes a club needs a few winged jumps to have enough for Elite Jumpers.

Linda I would say that, at least on the west side of Washington, you will see only wingless jumps.  Winged jumps are still legal for a NADAC trial but most clubs and the big trial sites have enough wingless jumps available.

For training insurance, build 2  "1/2 gate"s.  That way you can put them next to a wingless jump and train a winged jump before you see one.  Or if your training has any winged jumps, just a time or so with them and your dog will be fine.  Especially if you train a little distance from the jump so your path is smooth.

Winged jumps can be used.  I also sent 6 winged jumps to champs this year, but I get they didn't get used, but they certainly could have been used.
