How hard can it be?

Here's the diagram for the ASCA course. We are entered in Started. Doesn't look that difficult, right?


I need to stop thinking about all the crap that could go wrong.

Here's the AKC Started course that I'm thinking about entering. That trial is the weekend after the ASCA trial, and is in Gig Harbor, WA. It's a little more... involved.


I am kind of on the fence about whether to enter this class, or the one below it (PT) which is basically like ASCA started but with a change of direction and you pick up the sheep with an outrun instead of taking them out of a pen. Anyone have any advice as to which one I should enter?

I am only doing these trials for the experience. Cedar and I have never competed before and I want to get our feet wet. Plus I think it will be kinda fun, too :) I'm planning on running her in Don Couch's Novice trial in June as well. Hopefully we'll be ready by then for bigger, better things.

I'm going out to Dianne's on Friday and Sunday. I'm excited to work Cedar some more :)

Oh, do started. It's a fetching course the whole way. We managed to do it!
