mum24dog Posted December 20, 2013 Report Share Posted December 20, 2013 Just wondering if your major agility finals in North America are always stand alone agility events or whether they ever combine with something else. Even though agility is a small part of the programme, many people consider this as the must qualify for final in the UK, even above Crufts. http://www.olympiahorseshow.com/ It's on now until Sunday and I'm so excited as one of our members has qualified for Sunday with her randomly bred farm collie. She's 15 now and has been training with us since she was 9, starting with a rescue collie. I'm sure I'm more nervous for her than she is. Another member won the ABC final on Wednesday with one of his kelpies but he's won it more than once before, once with a 12 year old lurcher. So many agility people are horse people too and it's a great combination which publicises the sport to a wider audience - up to 8000 people at a session. (Not that we need for it to be any more popular.) Crufts Arena holds about 6000. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
