Dahlia and I went to a CPE trial last weekend and had a BLAST. She got two Q's (one in Jackpot and one in Standard) and ended up getting a mini-title because of the Standard Q. We're just Level 1 and so we're just sort of figuring this stuff out.
Here's my ridiculously happy monster and her ribbons.
Anyway, that's not the ridiculous part. The VIDEO is. My instructor videotaped our Jackpot run. Here's the fun thing about it: (1) I started in a place I totally didn't start in because everyone else did. Oops! (2) So I had NO PLAN on where to go after the first few obstacles. (3) Which meant I had NO IDEA where I needed to throw in a front cross (as we're not up on rears yet).
Dahlia had fun even though I looked like a moron! One of these days I swear I'll get a video of a GOOD run!
