- Grand Prix
Heat was a factor. It was high 90's and possible 100 on Friday. Stomach issues plagued me. And lastly the courses were incredibly challenging.
I loved the challenge and honestly, Fin really ran well. Just a couple mistakes kept us out of the Q's. No worries always stuff to work on.
Ran Olive. What a ride. First day was a bust. It was 100 degrees, I hosed her down (she does not like this) but I really thought I had her attention when I walked to the line. But no. She was not really into it. A bit of distraction by a dragon fly and some smelling grass resulted in only a couple jumps and a tunnel and then me running to the finish line hoping Olive would come (which she did). Sat was awesome with a very nice jumpers run. Sunday was very nice with all contacts completed. A good first try.
Here is the highlight reel.
Overall, I think I'm done with Woodland in September. Just too hot. I did enjoy myself and perhaps next September, I'll forget how hot it was and go again.
