Among the many iconic events at The Royal in Toronto is the now beloved tradition of the $20,000 show jumper / K9 relay, which pairs up an FEI show jumper with a champion agility dog to compete for the best overall time of two combined courses. The already-famed crowd gets even more enthusiastic when the dogs appear, and the event always makes for great entertainment.
This year’s event on Saturday afternoon was no exception, with dogs cruising over ramps and jumps, through tunnels, and finally tackling a massive doggy puissance wall.
This year’s winning combination was Richie Moloney (IRL) aboard Alsvid, along with canine partner Party, a ferociously fast Bearded Collie. Erynn Ballard (CAN) and Bella Donna were runners up, partnered with a very fast Rottweiler named Shrek.
