Don't worry there is always next year. The first Rally trial I took Raina to we completely blew. She wasn't ready for competition and I had no idea what it was like to compete. I had never been to a trial so I just entered her and we went. She did terrible, forgetting every command I thought she knew, wouldn't front for anything, and kept looking around outside the ring to find my daughter who she thought was missing. I forgot all my training on getting her attention and was a nervous wreck. We did learn a lot that time though and within 5 months later she had her RN title. I haven't gone on to RA even though I have the signs and she knows all the commands and things she is supposed to do, due to lack of funds, having to go stay overnight, and lack of a dependable vehicle to go in, etc. It has been a few years now since we competed but maybe one day.
