Sheep dog triallist Rachel Munn learned a lesson she probably won't forget in a hurry during the annual Wanganui Centre and Feilding club event on the Hodgetts, Adkins and Gallen farms, on Mangapapa Rd, Pakihikura, Hunterville, over the weekend.

Munn with dog Moss all but won the shorthead competition, but was disqualified after Munn stepped out of bounds before her last sheep had crossed the line.

Better luck came for competitor Dermott Mullins who gained intermediate status in winning the shorthead and yard with Jay.

Club member Kelly Jacobs also broke into open company with Gin, winning the Straight hunt.

The next trial takes place this weekend at Omatane-Kawhatau.
