Clapton, Open Trial
- Open Trial
- Trial Held: 28 January 2007
Judge: PIPPA BENTHAM
Stewards: Liz Hickman, Jenny Jefferson
Thank you to Donyatt for the invitation to judge the CD stake, to Vikki and Simon for a great job in the kitchen, and Liz and Jenny for stewarding. The weather was kind to us, and the field for the nosework and control was excellent – clean grass about 4 inches high. Jumps and stays took their usual toll, and I finished with only one qualifier.
1st Ruth Kuszek and OTTO, SBT, 91, Q. A well polished performance from an enthusiastic dog, with a really sympathetic handler.
2nd Sue Topley and FLORRIE, Crossbreed, 75, NQ. Agility proved costly today, but Florrie is really coming on. Well done.
3rd Rose Faulkner and CHARLES, Shetland Sheepdog, 72, NQ. Charles worked well, and Rose has promised to do a bit more training.
4th Ann Bracegirdle and BRACKEN, Border Terrier, 70, NQ. Bracken worked very nicely in the majority of exercises, just the down stay and long jump let you down.
One final thank you to Frances and Lionel Stoneley for putting on a really well-run and relaxed trail, in difficult circumstances.
