The event at Ardingly was fab, as usual, with lots of stalls, events and activities, as well as all of the friends that we met up with there.
I finally managed to get an opportunity to let Ruby have a go at the Splash 'n' Dash event, but she didn't take to it quite as well as I expected. Bearing in mind that she loves water and is a complete ball monster, I thought this would be right up her street, but she was quite hesitant. Here are a couple pictures of her having a go:
Both girls were entered into the Combined 3-5 Jumping which was a pretty tricky course.
Ruby went first and had trouble with her weave entry, and then she ran over to see Ian who was watching at the side, but she was driving forward so overall a good effort
Pepper was full of it! She wasn't going to get distracted by Ruby and Ian on the sidelines, but she picked up 5 faults for a weave issue!
Pepper also had two Agility runs:
Combined 4-7 Agility - I was conscious that she might not hold her contacts after the show last weekend, so had decided that I would use this as a training run which allowed me to see if she would pick up the tricky weave entry - she didn't!! And then, as expected, she released herself from the A-frame so I put her back to get Eliminated.
Graded 4 & 5 Agility - This was a pretty straight forward course, and Pepper did a lovely clear run, but with a twiddle at wrong end of tunnel which would have cost us a couple of seconds. They only placed 1st and 2nd so a Clear Round rosette for us - she was 4th! But good to have a clear round and with lovely contacts too!
Overall a lovely day out, a fab weekend camping, and hopeful of some more clear rounds as the season carries on.
