The pilot was conducting a short-field landing demonstration on a dirt airstrip. During the landing approach, the tailwheel impacted a berm of dirt located at the approach end of the airstrip. The nose pitched down and the propeller struck the runway, followed by the main landing gear. The airplane then bounced back into the air, the pilot added power, and the airplane skidded to the left. The right main landing gear and tailwheel separated during the impact sequence. The pilot indicated that he should have landed farther down the airstrip. No mechanical anomalies were reported.
