LOW 550 National Jumping Cup Rules

NEW: RULES for 2017/18 qualifying heats, for 2018 Final              

LOW 550 is a national jumping cup competition for handlers wishing to compete in a prestigious qualifier at the same height as the Lower Height Option at KC Agility tests (550mm).  This sponsored event is open to all dogs in the Large height category (ie measuring over 430mm at the withers). 

 There will be 10 qualifying heats held around the country, for CG 1-4 and CG 5-7.  The host show has the choice of whether to run both parts together, or separately.  The host show can choose whether to run the qualifier as a Special class, or as the LHO part of a Standard Progression class/es.  The top two dogs and handlers from each part will qualify for a similarly split Final taking place at Prestbury Park Premier Agility Show in September 2018, at Cirencester Park in Gloucestershire.
