Hi Phil, if you have a look at these 2 pics you will see the handler position and elements are different when performing a Front Cross and a False Turn.
With the first pic, the handler is facing the motion, position, laser & feet forward, Her eyes are looking at the dog and dog side arm is presented.
This tells the dog to follow the handling to the takeoff side of the jump.
In the False Turn pic the handler has Motion and position moving toward the next obstacle , while their eyes; chest & feet will be facing the dog( NOTE That the handler would already be turned into the dog because the FT starts on the previous obstacle, not between the 2 obstacles.
Hoping Janita can let us know why a FC is used instead of FT ?
