It's so sad when all the fun has to end. What an incredible weekend we had though. Today started off with Trigility and the Sassy Trio. We all ran clean, I got to do the gamble portion, which we successfully completed, and our team ended up in 4th Place. Go Sassy Trio!! Next was the Finals Standard run. It was a VERY tricky course, with a lot of challenges. Every team in my class made mistakes, including us (we took a wrong jump), so there was no way I was able to even guess how everyone fared. Overall we had a great run, so it was just up to how the numbers were going to add up. Then we ran our Finals Jumpers run. I love Jumpers courses, and this one was a lot of fun. Lots of challenges, and I had to do some handling moves I'm not real comfortable doing. It was a great run, and I knew we ran it as well as we could have. I saw one team knock some bars, but I didn't watch anyone else, so again, it was an agonizing wait to see how it all ended up. Finally all the runs were done, scores were added up and it was time for the Finals ribbons to be handed out. I'm still in shock, and I don't think I'll ever come out of it. We ended up placing 3rd in the Standard Finals and 2nd in Jumpers Finals. The Jumpers is the one I'm most surprised about. We didn't place at all in either run on Friday or Saturday, but we were consistent enough to end up 2nd overall. What a great partner I have in Kaylie the Wonder Dog!! Looking forward to next year now, where hopefully I'll be competing with Conor too!
