The recent weather had taken its toll on the ground at Walton-on-Thames so we had the jumping and steeplechase ring in the field and the agility ring in the training area but with an interesting arrangement that included a tunnel around the base of a tree!
We ran the Jumping first - it was a tricky course but managed to go clear and I was really pleased with Pepper's weaves which are definitely getting quicker.
Agility I - I ran this NFC - Scrambles is unusual in that they let you take food into the ring to train so it gave me an opportunity to reinforce the 2 on 2 off position that Pepper is trained to achieve. She didn't know that I was going to feed her and stopped on every contact!
Steeplechase - another tricky course but delighted to get another clear!
Agility II - I decided to run this for competition so that Pepper would not expect to get fed every time - she stopped on every contact again, did a good seesaw and weaves but sadly had a pole down. I'm happy with what she achieved though and don't think it will be long before we start getting clears in agility.
When the results were announced we had been placed 3rd in Jumping and 2nd in Steeplechase so we came home with another 2 pretty rosettes to add to our collection!
