Gold for Rickmansworth dog agility pair in the Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes at London International Horse Show
A Rickmansworth woman and her border collie are celebrating after beating hundreds of other dog and handler teams to win one of the world’s most prestigious agility competitions.
Natasha Wise and Dizzy overcame ten teams to win the medium agility stakes final at the Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes held at the London International Horse Show in December.
Winning gold in the competition completed a wonderful year for Natasha and Dizzy as they recently became World Agility Champions for the third time as well as Crufts Champions this year.
Natasha said: "We are over the moon to win as it means we are Crufts Champions, Olympia Champions and World Champions all in one year. After the World Championships, Olympia is the competition everyone wants to win.
"I didn't think we could run clear again after the year we have had but Dizzy was paw perfect and it resulted in the victory. Dizzy like all dogs is one in a million and I am honoured to be her owner."
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club secretary said: "Congratulations to Natasha and Dizzy for winning the medium final.
"It was a tightly contested final and they beat very strong competitors to win the title. What a fantastic year they’ve both had."
