Melissa Bishop, Averill Ring and Erica Vandover at a Thanksgiving weekend trial

Formed early in 2007 with the goal of promoting USDAA agility by holding USDAA agility trials, Virginia Ruff Riders L.L.C. achieved that goal with our first trial in May 2007, four trials in 2008, and three planned annually after that. In 2010 we participated in the reinstitution of USDAA’s Spring Festival, in cooperation with two other clubs, donating “our” week for the Mid-Atlantic Agility Showcase. We continue to co-host this event, which has become an East Coast highlight and favorite since then. We now do two regular USDAA trials each year, one in the end of June and one on Thanksgiving weekend. Check out our Trials page for details on those and other agility trials we do.

Small but mighty…

Three members strong, we are deeply grateful to the members of the agility community for their support in entering our trials and for the tireless efforts of the many individuals who continue to make it possible for us to achieve our goals.

USDAA highlighted our club in March. Check it out!
