The Semifinal was just my kind of course...fast, flowing, and plenty of places to drive on.
Overall, the course ran well and the majority of faults were technicalities, like bars and contacts. The second jump was a double and bars were an issue here, as well as later when it was taken again along the side line. Some of us were in a hurry and suffered a run by on the second A-frame.
Lining up for the broad jump was important to avoid slicing through the side or ticking a plank. For some reason, dogs later in the day seemed to have more trouble with this.
Dogs also had #15 down coming around the bend heading for the finale.
