Emma competed in the highest Grade for Jumping and Agility, Grade 3 and Levi in Agility 2 and Jumping 3. Emma started off slow-ish, but picked up speed nicely towards the end of the weekend giving her fastest performance in her last Contact run on Sunday afternoon. Levi once again had a problem with the higher SADAA tyre, running underneath it every time, but doing it the second time at least, every run.
Levi had one very good Contact run on Saturday, getting all his contacts and with wonderfull speed, but unfortunately he knocked the very first jump, so just lost out on a qualification. He managed two 3rd placings.
Emma was a SUPERSTAR with 7 out of 8 clear rounds over the entire weekend, to end tied top Mini Dog on points, but then over-all speed was looked at, she just lost out and came 2nd. Still a wonderfull achievement for my little girl! The doggie who won had 6 clear rounds, but because they drop the scores of your two worst rounds, and him being a little faster than Emma, he walked away with the tropy, still very well deserved.
I am VERY pleased to report that Levi won his first ever medal (medals only awarded in Grade 3), bronze in Jumping, missed his QC towards Champion by half a second. Still a wonderfull achievement competing against Border Collies and Aussies in the Top Grade 3 Midi category.
Emma was consistent with her precision clear rounds, unfortunately many times just losing out on a podium placing, getting fourth because of her speed. She received 2 medals, one silver and one bronze.
Here we are catching a snooze in the car on the long trip back home.
Thanks to Nadine Shortland for the action photos and Wessel for the video of Levi's round.
