Videos from FRAC USDAA trial


Masters Standard - Second place



Steeplechase Finals - Elimination

I changed my strategy at the last minute (without walking it). What WAS I thinking;-)


Steeplechase Round 1 - First place



Masters Standard - Third place


Summit also qualified in Masters Jumpers both Fri. (1st place) and Sun. (4th place) and Gamblers and Pairs Relay but I don't have video of these runs.

FANTASTIC RUNs. That broad jump to the far side of the tunnel looked like quite a challenge no wonder you were not totally sure how you wanted to run that one. The contacts looked great, I love watching your weave entries your dogs make it all look so easy ;-). That looked like a neat place to trial too Kathy

Kathy, I actually knew exactly how I wanted to handle it - the way I walked it (Send to the jump after the weaves, set a LOM to the red jump before the BJ and recall over the red jump and push to the BJ). However, I guess there were several competitors who attempted to handle it from that side and failed. My friend was watching and convinced me to change my strategy.

Beautiful runs! I love watching you confidently lead out and calmly call you dog! I so wish we had a startline method that worked for us!

So is the friend that convinced you to change your strategy still your friend? LOL!

Thanks everyone.
@Ricky - LOL! Yes, she's still my friend. A few handlers who decided to handle the BJ from the other side like I originally walked it did not execute very well. I don't think it was a problem with the strategy, just execution.
