And the extra-point attempt is ... good!

Jumping dog

We couldn’t tell you who was winning, but we spent a few minutes Friday afternoon at Murieta Equestrian Center watching dogs of all shapes and sizes running complex obstacle courses led by their masters. It was the American Kennel Club agility trials staged by the Two Rivers Agility Club of Sacramento. We don’t know what any of that means, but the result is dogs running and jumping for all they’re worth, many of them woofing happily as they circle the course. We just walked in, so presumably you can too. The event continues Saturday and Sunday, from 8:30 a.m. to dinnertime.

Trick or treat -- on four feet

Halloween horses

This weekend's hunter jumper horse show at Murieta Equestrian Center was a Halloween celebration as well as a championship show. Saturday night, the crowd enjoyed a costume competition at the arena. Riders in all age groups and their horses appeared as a host of mythical characters, from the cast of the "Wizard of Oz" to Batman and Robin. Some of the horses changed species for the evening, transforming into poodles, a woolly lamb and even a giraffe.
