Burghley House Game and Country Fair Team Event

Lincolnshire Gundog Society and Living Hertage
28 and 29 May 2018
Burghley House

Judges: Casper Jonson, Godfrey Law

HBB Team:
Sarah Miles with Sault Samish of Meonvalley
Mike Jones with Cynhinfa Jarmen of Wauniago
Jacqui Crew with Hanans Kertis

The 2 day open working test event is always special with Morris Abbott and his team of helpers doing such a splendid job of setting tests to challenge each dog and handler. The event itself is wonderful with the shops and the displays, especially the exciting display of horse boarding and lurcher racing which brought in the crowds.

As winners of the 2017 event we went to defend our title with one change of dog which was Hanans Kertis.

As every year the tests involved a discussion between us as to who had which retrieve – using the dogs skills and experience. In one test Sarah had a blind retrieve across the lake after Mike and I had picked a mark each from the water. Sarah and Ted did a fantastic job and it really helped our position as many teams failed the test due to the difficulty.

We were delighted to win the event and be given a lovely trophy each and to keep.
