Since winning into Grade 6 I've found myself doubting my ability to get any further and win into Grade 7, and through worrying and overthinking I'm not running courses well. In particular I have realised that I run Pepper very carefully in competition with the aim of getting a clear round, but as she has picked up speed and gained confidence I am struggling to be in the right place. I don't run like this in training, so this will have to form part of my Winter training plan so that I can come back out in 2017 with renewed confidence.
Here are the results from this weekend:
Saturday - Clear Round for Combined G1-4 Jumping
Sunday - No clears!
She was running quite well but we had faults for missed contacts and missed weave entries!
Saturday - 4 x E's - No wait and had to be put back on the start line - bad handling - and fell off DW!!
Sunday - 2 x Agility clears, E for first Jumping and crashed into the 3rd jump on last - thankfully no damage done!
