WATCH: Llama sets Guinness World Record at Arley Hall

High-jumping Caspa cleared 1.13 metres high

A limber llama leapt into the record books in front of astonished crowds at Arley Hall near Northwich on Sunday (June 14).

Caspa soared an impressive 1.13 metres high in front of an official adjudicator at DogFest, setting the new Guinness World Record for high jumping by a llama.

Having spent hours watching show-jumping dogs doing agility at their home at the Canine Centre in North Wales, Caspa and his team Black Rock Llamas made it clear to owners Derek and Sue Williams that they wanted to join in the fun.

Black Rock Llamas proved so good at show jumping that they have gone on to form the first and only llama agility display team in the UK.

Sue said: “We are so proud of Caspa and are delighted that he has set a new Guinness World Record at DogFest.

“We had such fun at Arley Hall; Caspa is a real show-off so it has been the perfect place for him to achieve this record and perform in front of such a big crowd.”
