I see every step on course as part of a big dance. As I approach a jump I am already visualizing the next jump and working on everything I need to do NOW to jump the fence in front of me in just the right way to set me up for the next one. I am always thinking one, maybe two jumps ahead. That way I get the angles I need, the turns I need, the distances I need (more curve or less to keep the distance in the stride I want), and I land on the lead I need.
This is what goes through my mind as I approach a jump. The jump in front of me is simply in my way to do everything I now
need to do for the next ones..
