|I agree, it does help if you have a good instructor. The local one ( and only one with in an hour in any direction) I thought was OK for the longest time, until I took a private lesson near where my parents lived ( sadly almost 2 hours away) and relaized I learned more in that hour than I had in weeks in regular class back home.
I've not run into trialing too early problems, but rather not practicing enough in trial like situations/group setting lately. Due to the fact our classes have virtually stopped ( instructor was on break down in florida over the winter) and the fact we feel shes not a good fit, shes become extreamely scared in trial type environments now..I was so hoping with my backyard equipment and private lessions here and there we could prove we didnt need our crazy instructor ( shes been rather harsh concerning my dogs attitude lately as well), but alas, its proving hard.. I took her to a run through this week at a different location and she was so scared, like shed never trialed before... sigh.. If we can't find a good place to go, we may retire.. I'm pregnant and due in Sept, might be a good time to do so anyhow.
