PVSSC Barn Hunt Trial
On Thursday June 25th, the PVSSC held its first official Barn Hunt Trial in conjunction with the SSCA National Specialty. It was a hot day but fortunately we had the shadiest spot on the whole Raceway Complex grounds for the course. Lovey Lyons brought up over 40 bales of straw on her trailer, and trial chair Candace Craig and helpers, as well as the judges, assembled the course in a covered pavilion. Because of space and time limitations, we only offered Rat Instinct and Rat Novice runs this time, but there was a good entry and a lot of enthusiasm. It was heartening to see so many show winners (who would be beautified for the ring over the next four days) getting down and dirty to find their rat-hunting roots!
The Trial was open to all breeds, although Standard Schnauzers predominated. There were 36 SS entered, as well as 10 other breeds, ranging from Cavalier King Charles Spaniels to German Shepherd Dogs, for a total of 52 dogs and 38 exhibitors!
There were 35 Rat Instinct runs, with 21 passed (60%) – 18 of 28 SS passed. Of the 42 Rat Novice runs, 13 passed (31%) – 9 of 33 SS passed. Overall, there were 77 runs and 34 passed.
