Report from Virginia Harry and The CSJ Agility Open Team
We are up and running on day 3 with the CSJ Agility Nationals round 2 judged by Judy Wills
I’d just like to say what an incredible achievement it is for any dog and handler team to have had clear rounds consistently across the Pent (4 classes so far) so massive well dones to everyone who has achieved that, especially Steven Richardson, in pole position in the 500 height category with Digit.

Here are Steve’s runs from last night’s Steeplechase Final. He finished 3rd with Digit and 5th with Future. All the results are here
Nice work from Steven Richardson and Digit this morning, coming 2nd in the CSJ Championship Agility in the 500 height, perfectly placed for the Finals tomorrow. Congrats to Stephanie Best and Fate for a super winning run.
This morning’s course plans. I’m really looking forward to the CSJ Nationals agility course… it’s going to be a fast one.
This afternoon’s course. Good luck to everyone from all at CSJ.
Gamblers is one of those classes that you have to understand to enjoy spectating, in my opinion. The Gamble on this one is very difficult and so far, 16 dogs in, only Cameron Bunce has made the Gamble so far, although that still only puts him in second place, because current leader, Harriet Harding and Izzy, notched up more points on the course, even though they didn’t get the gamble. Making sense yet? 😂 Maybe these runs from Steve and Digit, Steve and Future, and Hayley and Pixel might help!
Well done chaps! Especially Steven Richardson and Digit (pictured left, next to lovely judge Judy Wills)… all the pressure on going last and you did us proud with your 3rd place… nano seconds in it!
This amazing run from Hayley and Atom put them into 2nd place in 600 Gamblers. Hardly any dogs are getting the gamble so this is a remarkable achievement. Huge well done to Gemma Haycock and Jukebox for the win at this height.
In the 500 height, a well deserved win for Dalton Meredith and Munchy – that was some running, Dalt! Steve and Digit were 2nd.
300 was won by Katrina Hands and Sizzle, with Rachel Ward and Nimbus runners-up. At the time of writing, 400 is being won by Helen Swan and Cloud, with Steven Richardson and Poppy in 2nd place.
