So who is Three Rivers Ratters Barn Hunt Club LLC ? Three Rivers Ratters Barn Hunt Club is Rita Abdella and a host of beloved volunteers! Barn Hunt trials rely heavily on participation from the competitors! So please volunteer to help with the various tasks performed during trials ; Course building, scribing results, being a blind steward or even being a Rat Wrangler!
The club was born out of our love of the sport and the fact that there was only one active Barn Hunt Club in Eastern Washington. I have dogs that compete in Barn Hunt and have recently added a new Barn Hunter to my family. I have acted as judges for Fun Tests, and given seminars and workshops in the Tri-Cities, Union Gap and Deer Park, Washington as well as in Idaho !
We offer training classes both here in Benton City, WA., as well as private lessons and practice time particularly before an event. We also have the capability to provide equipment such as regulation rat tubes and fencing, and hopefully in the future, instinct cradles!
We plan on future sanctioned trials at various venues throughout Eastern Washington in every level of competition.
We have just re-aligned the club and this will be the first trial under the new management, and we are looking forward to planning for next years events. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us. We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. There's much more to come!
