I am extremely proud of Motto. I showed him in the 1.45m jump off class yesterday. The course was scopey with many technical questions. Certainly the most impressive track Motto has jumped. The afternoon crowd didn't disturb his focus on the jumps. He soared around answering all of the course designer's questions, until the very end. He confidently flew the big water. As we came by the in gate he thought the course was over. He lost focus briefly. The final jumps, a 1 stride pair of vertices down the hill. Motto hit A and cleared B, for a score of 4 faults. I am thrilled with his performance! Onward!
