Great weekend!

February 13, 2012

The RAT trial last weekend was great for the Elvstad clan. ‘Mber got his first Q by rocketing through the tunnelers course earning a blue ribbon. The fact that he beat Mirha by close to a second earned him bragging rights on the drive home… He did two more runs, both fast, but not quite in the sequence suggested by the course designer. That was not a problem in my view – having a very positive experience of being in the ring was all what it was about this time. The greatest thing about it was that his keep-away game was gone and he was totally unfazed by the trial environment, relaxing in his kennel without worries between runs.

Mirha did really great as well. She came home having earned her elite Touch-n-Go title and therefore also her elite versatility award, the elite outstanding chances title and the elite superior hoopers title. The most cherished run we had, however, was not a qualifying run. We tried to do the elite jumpers run from a small bonus box. I was hoping to get the first 5-6 jumps handling it from the box. Instead, we got much farther, not derailing until the very end. Of the few that attempted the box, I think our run was the most successful. There were some redirects, so it wouldn’t have qualified as a bonus run anyway, but just getting that far was a new high point for us. I haven’t had that much fun in a run for years!
