Even though Haddy took a spill, he was able to get back up and recollect. Ripple, who was tearing up the course prior to the mishap, was able to complete the event.
In the end, Verb the Border Collie won both the 20″ Class and had the best overall time at 31.30 seconds. Verb won the 2021 Masters Agility Champion trophy for the second time in three years.
