Tip of the day – Checking Straightness over Fences

imageStraightness is essential over a fence.

In order to check your straightness over a fence draw a circle in sand to land in after jumping. A really simple way of judging if you are straight and  how far off you are. This technique works particularly well over skinny fences which are sometimes harder to tell if you are straight over.
