    Limited spots in Beginner (Pre-Lim 3 spots), open International horse agility (4 spots), Ridden (2 spots left), Equagility (4 spots) other open classes both have 1 spot each.

    Whew filling already, does make it easier to allocate spots though :D

    This is being held a long way out of Perth isn't it.

    Would love to get involved with this, especially the liberty but I pretty sure it's too far away.

    Sorry that 2 hours is abit far for Perth People. :confused:

    We have people coming from Geraldton and Albany to the Kellerberrin State Champs.

    There is a group in Mandurah, Morangup is 50mins towing a float from Claremont showgrounds. Northam is 1 and half hours from Claremont showgrounds. And we have people coming from Serpentine to be at the Northam and Morangup one on a regular basis. They also attend other groups one being in Mandurah.

    A little too far?

    With what you do, you should set up a group.
    Plus I love your highlands.... my friend breeds them in NZ

    If I was already competing and getting seriously involved then I would make the journey especially if I can get 3 or 4 horses ready. It would be at least 3 hours with the truck so just to see how my young guy (2 1/2)goes for his first outing (never having done agility before.... me or him lol)... yep a bit far. I have to admit I went to one down at Baldivis to have a look and would definitely never be doing liberty with my stallion in that arena. As much as he stays with me most of the time there is always a chance with a stallion they will leave and having other horses on adjoining wire fences I wouldn't take the risk. In fact they didn't even have a liberty class I don't think, whereas I have seen some of the youtube clips from your comps and the facilities seem better selected.

    Horses are still horses and no matter their training they still have their own brain.
    I haven't seen the facilities at Baldivis.

    The arena's in Northam (way to far for you;-)) are only taped inside a normal fenced paddock.
    But to cater for the 2 colts that do come, the whole paddock is emptied. Online as normal for horse shows.
    Morangup is a much better set up and when I grow up I want her set up.

    You can do it online with the International Horse Agility Club.

    Hopefully other groups will set up closer to you.
    We will be slowing our comps down after the States as we just have to big a waiting lists for the Challenge and clinic days. We actually have no idea what to do about it as people seem to like the structure we have, but there are other agility groups.
    I had 9 on people on the waiting list for last sunday. And we had 17 attend... lesson learnt we will NOT be holding them that big again!!!!!!
    It was far too hard, we will stick to our 12 People max, no matter how hard people beg lol.

    Especially the Liberty stuff, we have 2 people whom have passed Level 1, and one person who rides in a string.
