A little inspiration for everyone trialing this weekend. Heck even if you're not trialing this weekend.
You get that song in your head while you're waiting at the gate and then standing on that start line and you can't help but have the most awesomest of runs. That's my plan for this weekend anyway. We're only in 2 classes per day of a USDAA trial because I didn't want to enter classes with dogwalks but one of those classes is Steeplechase and we're going to have the most awesome fast smooth clean run. Because I said so. And because we've been practicing our butts off.
In even better news Strum finally had a 100% dogwalk practice. Oh joyous rapture of 100% dogwalk contacts. I nearly broke down weeping from the joy of it. Set-up was dogwalk-jump-treat gizmo then after a few reps I added a jump before the dogwalk. I went back to the treat gizmo so I could be sure I was judging the contacts properly but I'm intrigued by the 2 toy method and I'll be going back to that. I'll probably alternate back and forth between them to keep us both on our toes.
5/5 (100%)-full dogwalks
50's, breezy, morning
