Drills for Rear loop.
  • Focus on the front of the loop being about 20deg before the horse not directly in-line with it.
  • Work a lot of rear loops on a floor horse if available.
  • The rear swing should just barely clear the pommels (unless the gymnast already swings huge). If the rear portion of the swing is too high then the swing will drop in the front.
