ABC National Rally Trial
HISTORY OF THE NATIONAL RALLY TRIAL
Rally was first offered at the National Specialty in 2005. The Novice A and Novice B classes, with a total of 10 Brittanys were judged by E. H. Hass. Voyageur’s Brtpatch Rifleman CDX JH MX OAP MXJ MJP owned by B. & P. Scott won the Novice B class with a perfect score. CH My Scarlet Feather STKS RN owned by S. Shrank won the Novice A class with a score of 97.
In 2006, Rally Advanced and Excellent classes were added and L.F. Eggers judged 8 Brittanys. The first year we had Brittanys eligible for High Combined Score (Advance B and Excellent B) was in 2007. There were only two Novice B entries in 2011 and Rally was not offered at the 2012 and 2013 National Specialties. Based on scores, the Rally High Combined Dogs (2007 – 2014) were calculated from the AKC Database and are presented in the list of Winners. The ABC officially offered Rally High Combined at the National Specialty in 2015. Rally Master and High Triple (Advance B, Excellent B and Master classes) were added to the National Specialty in 2019.
