Count down

I head to another ASCA trial this weekend.  As has been the case in the past, I’m very excited about going.  I enjoy ASCA trials.  We are ready  for the cattle this time around.  Unless something goes horribly wrong, we should finish Gel’s WTCH this weekend.  I think if we were faced with cattle similar to those we saw at the past two trials, we might have a chance of managing them now.  That is a good feeling.

I got a title certificate from ASCA last night for Gel’s Novice Standard title in ASCA.  Funny thing is, we’ve never done an ASCA agility trial.  Free titles though, we’ll take them.

I spoke with my instructor in Sanford yesterday and made plans to start going back there in June.  She should see a lot of improvement in Gel.  It’s time to start stretching him out and pushing him towards running in Open.  He’s 100 percent on whistles and his driving has become more solid.

After this ASCA trial we’ll go back to agility on a more regular basis.  I’m looking forward to that.  I was talking to a friend yesterday who has done agility, but now trials in USBCHA.  I told her that I get scared trialing in USBCHA, but I’m not nervous or scared trialing in agility.  Wonder why.
