20 Nov 2021 – S,WS&H All Age Results

Yesterday UGS S,WS&H Branch held our AA Qualifier Trial at Castle Goring, West Sussex. We had a full card, the weather was ideal for shooting, overcast and a chilly breeze. 

16 dogs started and 5 finished with the ultimate drive over the lakes. All dogs were really tested over the day picking on grass, out of woods and over water. Heavy drives knocked out two or three on the first drive, but as the day went on the best dogs shone. 

Many thanks to the Somerset family for allowing us to hold our trial there, the judges: Jamie Bettinson, Roger Wade, Julia Smith and Alistair House. You all did a super job.

Thanks also to our sponsors, Skinners Dog food, George Barclay Dog Beds and Nash drying coats. 

My amazing team of helpers: Laura, Tracy, Alice, Faye, Ian and Pat and my mum and Bren van Laun Lesley, Anna, Pat, John, Matt, Jane, Andy and Kim. Couldn’t do this job without you all, your help and support is second to none! Also many thanks to Rosemary Saddler for her photography during the day.

13 Oct 2021 – S,WS&H Novice Stake

Yesterday UGS Surrey West Sussex and Hants branch held our Novice trial at Firle Estate by kind permission of Mr Rees and Mr Coleman. Firle’s very own character of their shoot captain Mr P Setterfield organised a fabulous team of guns headed by Mr B van den  Bogaerde who shot brilliantly in super weather. 

This was a driven trial, with birds landing in stubble for the first drive and a good crop of stubble turnip for the second. The Keeper and his team did a magnificent job at putting the right amount of birds over the guns all day. It takes skill to do this, so thank you Dave!!! The beaters and picking up team were given a bottle of sloe gin each and a tub of chocolates to show our appreciation first thing in the morning.

The 16 dogs were well tested on straight lines, handling and hunting ability, and “trial over” there were 5 dogs left at the end.
