Dog trials 'first': the lady is a champ

THE FIRST woman to win the Wanganui Centre Sheepdog Trial champs at Rangiwahia beat her own mentor for the title: her husband.

Ali Davy and her eight-year-old heading bitch, Juice, won the long head champs at Anzac weekend, from a field of 100.

Ali is the first female champ in the Wanganui Centre - which covers Wanganui, Rangitikei and Waimarino - but she didnt know that until she read it in the newspaper.

"There are about 12 women at the moment taking part in trialing, and any one of them could have been the first."

Ali and husband, Dave, along with their children, Amber, 11, and Jimmy, eight, live on an 1100 acre farm near Taihape. MORE>>
