It was time to man up. Time to take the Ryder boy to his first trial. He's not really ready. He's a bit unsure (make that quite a bit) on his commands. He doesn't cross drive yet. But I have 11 days to fine tune him before he debuts in his first trial. He'll be competing in the Lloydminister Stock Dog Trial on August 12th. It's a relaxed arena trial that I think will be a good first experience for him. I certainly don't expect him to do anything. In fact, I'm fully prepared to walk off the post to help him out.
Because I was feeling nostalgic, I've also entered Tessa. She's been quite sane, and it's only an arena trial. I'll do a few little tune up works with her prior to but will work her very little. I don't want to risk hurting her.
A little bit of old and new for a fun weekend.
