Belfast Judging Review

Sunday 5th October: Sunday was also my birthday (thank you to everyone who sent best wishes etc) and I was pleased that the weather was dry and not wet like the day before. I had 12 classes to judge and had designed a jumping course that I could easily adapt for each class. I will just like to say that I don’t actually like judges to set course similar from the one before, but I had a flight booked at 6.30pm and also I built the ring myself as there was very few ring party, so I decided to keep changes to a minimum!

The classes ran well, and I enjoyed my day. I had a particularly challenging grade 6/7 jumping course that was really fun to handle. (I will try and get a copy on here soon).

I flew back into Birmingham at half 7, and drove home. I was shattered by the time I got home. I would however like to thank the lovely people I met, both in training, at the show and socially. I was looked after so well all week (I can’t seem to get an Ulster Fry in Shrewsbury!) and the friendliness of everyone was fantastic.

Next up in three weekend’s time is a training weekend in Denmark with some of the people I met at Dania Cup 2008.

For now it’s training in the tipping rain back In Shropshire. Will get Scotty back into weave training soon!
