See Saw, Figure 8 in 500, Blind Cross

Silvia's comment
Nice see-saw! To get 2on2off also with you behind, leave the reward ahead (maybe at the next jump), let him see it’s there and then release him to a toy (no rewarding in a position). Once he knows the reward is always in front and not coming from you, it will be easier to stay behind. And yes, spread the jumps of figure 8 more and try to be in line with the wings. In general, it’s much easier to get a good turn with you on a take off side, but of course, you want to practice being on a landing side sometimes too! The cross you did in that sequence was actually a blind cross, not a rear cross – but it sure was a nice one!
