These events will be held at the Texas Tech Equestrian Center; May 1st thru 3rd.

In an Agility Trial, a dog demonstrates its ability to negotiate a complex course that will include climbing, jumping, going through tunnels, and weaving through a line of poles. There are different height categories and each exhibitor and dog team will be judged at one of 3 different levels of competition; Novice, Open or Excellent. The dogs competing in these classes are working toward AKC Agility titles.
There will be free canine educational material available at these trials. No admission fee will be charged for this fun and educational event. Don’t miss it! For more information call 535-3794 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. No unentered dogs will be allowed.
