The Working And Herding Breeds Club Of The Cape – Working Trials Championship Show 2013

The second of our August Championship Working Trials shows was held today at Matjieskuil. We all fought our way through the mist on the N1 and arrived at a freezing cold and very misty field. The sun soon came up and the mist cleared for a superb day. No jackets, short sleeve T-shirts but not too hot for the dogs.

We had some great results with competitors going home beaming from ear to ear. Particularly our ladies in TDIII where we had three qualifications. Well done to Bobby who qualified with both her dogs, Quest and Tyler, both yesterday and today and to Sheila and Bronte for earning their second qualification in TDIII.

The other qualification today went to Linda and Odie who qualified in TDI. That gave us four qualifications out of nine entrants again today. A very successful weekend for Working Trials.

Grateful thanks yet again to our tracklayers, working trials secretary and our judge who gave up his entire weekend to judge our Shows. Not forgetting our sponsors, Kyron Labs, and the Working And Herding Breeds Club Of The Cape for allowing us to hold the working trials show under their license.
