Jane wrote this when she first started trialing,
'My unsuspecting entry to the all consuming sport of Sheep Dog Trials.
In February 1990 i purchased a Border Collie pup from a man i kindly refer to as "Dan the man" i.e. Danny Thompson, which was out of his bitch Nell, and i named her Jess.
She started to show a keen interest in sheep at the very early age of 4 months, so not knowing how to train a dog. i joined a local ATB class and at the helm was Maurice Collin. With me keen to learn and a dog keener Maurice taught us all he could in the two; 8 week classes that we attended.
On the day of purchase Dan told me on a nursery trial to be held the following Saturday at Moorsolm. To this i eagerly attended and came away totally hooked. So from that day on i went to all the local trials, dog and kids in tow, and watched with keen interest.
On December 1st 1990 (i remember it well) I arrived at Les Jones trial at Pickering, this time with dog only. After watching for 2 or more hours, Dan persuaded me to have a go as it was a well fenced field, and he was there as back-up! So i paid my sub and booked in Jess and waited. When our turn came we walked to the post, wishing i hadn't, but the sheep were at the top of the field and Jess was ready for off. So off to the right she went, when she arrived behind her sheep, i blew my whistle, but nerves rooting me to the spot and dry mouth, nothing happened! Instinctively the dog did her best and brought them down the field around me then lost them to the exhaust pen. But even after that haunting first time we still look forward to SATURDAY'S.
P.s Nerves a little more controlled now!'
