GT UKA show

Meme has had a first taster of agility competitions:

Nursery agility

Beginners steeplechase

We went to GT UKA bank holiday weekend, I put her in nursery agility and beginners steeplechase as she is only just 17 months she can not yet enter KC shows. Her agility class was first in, this class has no weaves, no tyre and no see-saw which is great for bringing youngsters on, it helps to gain some ring experience. Bless her she worked fab doing perfect touch points 2 on 2 off, she was soooo far ahead of me out the tunnel I had to work the box from outside and at a distance, I was so impressed how she did it.... I became a spectator in my own round and forgot to move letting her back jump number 7, I collected her back for number 11 sent her on so I could do a cross behind she picked up the corner jump alone, she did brilliant.
Onto steeplechase, this class again has no tyre, flat tunnel or weaves, she did a perfect wait a the start line pick up speed into the tunnel, pushed back nicely to the next jump called her off the tunnel trap sent her round the corner into the tunnel, front crossed, then she noticed her friend best friend was watching so she lost a little concentration and speed but went CLEAR in 26. seconds I was really pleased with her, what a little star.
Cruz her brother got 2nd place in a time of 21.08, he has qualified the dog games final.
Inca was brilliant 1st novice jumping, 1st novice steeplechase, 4th novice agility
100% for his 3 runs.
