Did Banksy make the Steeplechase finals?
This isn't the first time I've made a mistake running, and it probably won't be the last. Well, actually it would be great if it could be the last, but, you know...it won't be.
I can tell you though, that Banksy has been running every run like a super champ, I am very, very, VERY proud of her at her first Nationals. My one mistake at the very end of this run caused a refusal at the last jump that knocked her just below the 8 dog cut off for the finals, and I got a good dose of angsty sadness of Almost! She would have been running in the big night time final with a very nice placing in the Semi Final round otherwise. It was pretty exciting to be out there competing with such amazing fast dogs, and doing so well.
Well, ALMOST doing so well. Until that last jump!
You know what? I am very proud and excited though, for my friends that made the Steeplechase and Grand Prix finals. So many of them did, and I know how hard they all work to get there. Maybe we'll get there someday, maybe not. But I couldn't be any prouder of how well Banksy's running.
