While the pilot was practicing off-airport landings in a field next to his home, he inadvertently allowed the airplane's nose wheel strut to hit the ground hard enough that it stuck into the soft grassy terrain and collapsed. The airplane then nosed over, resulting in substantial damage to the vertical stabilizer and rudder. The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies with the airplaneā€™s flight control systems.
