Is there a way to make one look like this?

Just a hola hoop? No I doubt it. But building those is super easy and cheap, 2 cost me 15 bucks I think.

Well I had a hula hoop as a kid that came apart in two halves so it would have worked. I don't know if the still make any like that though. They're simple enough to saw in half though.

But to be honest I thought you were talking about something more like a tire jump, which is why I suggested the hula hoop.

Looks like a pvc cutter (or hacksaw), some 3/4" PVC, and a hula hoop. Or a credit card haha.

Here's a link where you can just buy them...24 dollars might just be worth the hassle of making one.

Well that was a waste of a hotel room. Next time I should just listen to my gut.

Gusto was super stressed out by the trial this weekend. I think it is a footing issue, and a ton of other dogs were having problems as well. We ran three classes last night, with a Q in the first class (his first time out at PIII jumpers), with each class progressively getting slower and most stressy. By the last class, I felt like I was pulling him around the course. I ran 1.5 classes with him this morning, and scratched the rest. I've worked too hard on his confidence to risk it. Meg ran her two classes (she has zero issues there, or really anywhere), but didn't cue; my errors because I haven't been running her lately and I tried to handle her like she's Gusto. She had a good time at least, and it makes me so happy she does.

I hate that I have over a month before my next trial. I will angst about Gusto until then.

Eep! I just filled out entries for four CPE trials & they're ready for the mail. We'll do one next weekend, then have a trial every other weekend through May 18th!

Sorry it didn't go so well, BB I'm glad Meg was sound and happy though! I know you were worried about that. I'm sure Gusto will be better next time on more comfortable footing.

I'm nervous because two of the trials we're signing up for are in a place where we had one night of class and had a bad experience (he started limping and then a horse vet fondled him and he freaked out and snapped at her). Sooooo, I'm all stressed out because he has a memory of an elephant and is already nervous in new places to begin with. We'll see!
