We had a lovely day at Forest Oak Farm HTM competition. I was so pleased with my boys! I feel like their only hindrance was me – in both routines I had their props in the wrong places so I messed up our spacing and timing (I’ve done these routines enough times to know better – no idea what my brain was doing!). Trip placed 3rd in the Advanced Freestyle Crufts Qualifier class (his bit of yipping taking him from 2nd to 3rd – this is why I am always such a bore about barking to my students! Learn from my mistakes!!). Strike worked the absolute best he has ever worked in the ring – he gave me 1000000% and couldn’t have tried any harder. He won his Novice Freestyle class which moved him up to Intermediate level!
