CPE Trial Murrieta, CA Level 2 Our First Trial

We left home at 5:15 AM. Chris called last night. She decided last minute she'd like to come. We arrived at about 6:30 which gave us plenty of time to set up. Our neighbor with a standard poodle was very nice and helped us. She had set up the night before.

I got Matilda measured. She was 23 and 3/4 so she would jump 20. We listened to the general announcements and the judges briefings.

First up was Full House.

N/Q 4th Place

Wildcard we finished N/Q again in 4th Place.

Standard was a disaster. It started out well, but then Matilda saw Chris outside the ring and took off toward her. I couldn't get Matilda's focus back and then to ice the cake she peed in the ring. Stress I'm sure. That's not in the video.

I can't make this work tonight. I've been trying for an hour. I can't upload, Things keep dropping out. For tonight I quit
