I would like to restate this whole post to ensure that I get it correct.
My never the "best" dog, HANZ and I went to our third AKC trial and obtained a red and yellow ribbon that has the AKC logo on top after we won HIGH IN TRIAL A CLASSES (as per ribbon)  This ribbon is to be considered a fake or non achievement as we only won it after no less than 9 and no more than 13 (not including 13 wildcard dogs) other dogs were UNABLE to complete their routine.  These dogs may have been MUCH better than my good for nothing old dog, but by SOME TRAVESTY they were unable to do the work.  It should also be noted that even though there were two AKC judges and 1 AKC official overseeing this event, my HIGH IN TRIAL standing is NOT RELEVANT.  It should further be noted that although this was a third leg to a CD and RN some here see it nothing to brag about and I apologize for mentioning it in the original post.  I sincerely apologize for giving anyone on this board the FALSE HOPE that working hard and being new at something might lead you to very happy times and ribbons with your dogs.  I APOLOGIZE FOR THE MISUNDERSTANDING! 
Here is a picture of the NON ACHIEVEMENT so that there is no misunderstanding about it NON VALUE!
I hope this is able to clear everything up for the "professionals" on this forum!  For those of you who used my name to provoke the attacking thread, here you go.
Hodie : Sharyn Baker Breeder
Mystere : Nia R Contrell (USA COMMITTEE member)
VomMarishal : Jackie Marshall Breeder
I know that I don't have the names of FHTracker who viciously attacked uno after a TOP NATIONAL trainer has already evaluated him and found him to be suitable to meet all of my needs. When I asked for credentials to back up this COUNTER evaluation THAT I DID NOT ASK FOR he supplied NONE.
or TessJ10 who has wrongly accused me of lying even AFTER I requested she call and VERIFY my fact, which she did NOT do, or Bazza for being a HORRIBLE, mean, truth twisting POSTER as well. 
If anyone wants to pm me or send a private email to please feel free.

Well, I was waiting to post this until I got the pictures done.  I went to the trial alone so I had to wait until I got home to take the pictures.
Hanz now has his AD, BH, CD, RN, and CGC.
At our title show (AKC), he WON HIGH IN TRIAL A classes.  The program shows 112 entries, but that is both A and B classes.  I'm not sure how many were in A classes.  I had SOOO much fun.  There were 9 entries in obedience (ring 2 class A) and I was so shocked and HAPPY when we got first.  Yippie, the first check my dog has won for me.  I REALLY love my dog.  Kuddos to Von Nimbus kennels.  I can't help but thank them everyday I have him and can't hardly wait until my new girl gets here.

Fantastic!  CONGRATULATIONS.  So you mean 1st place in Novice A or High in Trial overall?  Or is there a special prize for whoever is High Score of Novice A, Open A, and Utility A?  I've never seen that award offered.  Cool.  Your post was a little jumbled, but heck, I'd be jumbled with excitement, too.  What was your score?

The photos are great, and CONGRATULATIONS again!!!

Its funny I was so happy I got my title I didn't ask.  Someone had to find me to tell me I won first.  The high in trial was overall high for the day.  I will check AKC website as soon as they publish my score to get it.
Yep, I am very excited.  This is my first 'on my own' dog.

Oops, overall high in trial class A: Novice A, Open A, and Utility A.

Thanks all.  I am very happy.
I hope to get schutzhund next.  Tracking has me wiggie, but I just keep trying.

AKC was great fun though.  Even though it was a big show, people seemed so laid back.

Best wishes with you dogs,

It seems like CKzaja may have a problem with my high in trial.  Please do explain.

At first glance it may seem like class a isn't good enough for some.  It's a good thing to be happy with your work and content with what you got so that you can move on to the next new thing your are trying to learn.

Oops, I was referring to this thread:

See this is the importance in action of staying on topic.

Windy -

I think what is being pointed out that High in Trial (technically it is called High Scoring Dog in Regular Classes in the AKC) denotes just that - the high scoring dog in the trial.  In the trial that is being discussed here that went to Betty Barnes' Sheltie named Steed in the Open B class.  You received first place in Novice A.  If you scroll down on the below link you will see that they list Steed as the High Scoring Dog in Regular Classes.

Still, congratulations on your first foray into AKC obedience and good luck in the future.  I love seeing Novice A teams out there :-)

Thank you for helping me with this.  I seem to be confused about how to word things.
I thought by pointing out (copy past: At our title show (AKC), he WON HIGH IN TRIAL A classes) that it was class A, I represented that is was not High in day trail.  I tried to be CLEAR that it was class A and that I was shocked.  What more can one do?
