I am not sure why Whisper slipped in the video but whatever happened she certainly was lucky to come off the course okay. It looks like her back left hindleg may have slipped on take off and she didn't get the correct height to clear the jump. Scary- so thankful her neck is okay. Whatever happened the exhibitors were very helpful coming onto the course to help out if needed. We walked off and within minutes she seemed like herself. Make sure to listen with the sound up.
I was nervous to run the standard course an hour later. And of course the course would have our hardest obstacle sequence-a turn off a contact obstacle into a tunnel-twice. Maybe because I was so apprehensive about how Whisper was feeling and not wanting to push to go fast we got through the course successfully and 11 seconds under course time. Another 11 MACH points but no QQs. Importantly Whisper didn't seem hurt or reluctant to run the course. It wasn't until the next day that I thought I saw alittle reluctance to run in the ring that she fell the day before.
Next post will be the following day runs.
