|Cool as cucumbers!|
|I want to do more of this!|
So, I lined up on the far side of the cones to give ourselves more room.
And another competitor yelled that I needed to be on the other side of the cones!!
Come to find out she was disqualified for trying the same maneuver the year before. I was grateful for her sportsmanship!
|Walking the corner. No big deal...|
I trotted to fix it. She finished the circle on the correct lead.
She came down to the walk easily enough, and got the lead change!!
|breaking down to walk for the lead change|
Despite that craziness, I acquired the halt, and backed 6 steps. I nodded to the judge and returned to the line.
|When you take last place, you can still step out of line and accept your placing with good grace! After all, we were actually here!!|
