We headed off to Adams for Easter. The plan was to compete Friday and Saturday and I was judging on Sunday. We arrived on Friday morning and the ground was very soft, got the van stuck in the mud about 2m off the hard standing! The rings were surprisingly good though. We didn't manage all of our runs as walking and running courses for 3 dogs meant a few rings clashed and I didn't want to run anything I hadn't walked and handle the dogs badly and make them slip or slide unnecessarily.
We did have a good day though, Heidi did some nice bits with just a pole or missed weave entry. Chaos ran really well getting a 2nd in C4-5 Jumping and an clear round in Grade 5 jumping. I hadn't entered him into any agility as we still need more work on the running A frame but who knows when that will happen! Bridget also ran well, she was entered into allsorts classes just to boost her confidence and she was a really good girl. she was clear in 1 run and came 4th and her other one she just got 5f for running past the side of a jump.
By the time it was time to go home the ground had dried out a bit and I was able to reverse the van out without being towed thankfully.
On Saturday morning we arrived at the show and the ground was just awful, there was just mud everywhere. We decided not to stay, instead we had a nice early morning walk on Cannock Chase and headed back to my mums for the day. I judged on Sunday but with only half a ring actually usable it wasn't much fun. Think our trips there might well be over.
Our show for this weekend was meant to be Broadlands UKA but it has been cancelled due to the wet weather and the ground being bad so another week to wait before any more shows!
Today Heidi has been for Hydrotherapy. She will be going a couple of times a month to keep her fitness up. I'm aware she is now 10 years old and still competing so I want to keep her in as good acondition as possible. I think she enjoyed herself today!!!
