Muncaster Novice A/V Spaniel Trial

Thanks to Chapel Farm sponsored handler Simon Dixon for the following report from the Novice Trial held on the 1st October.

The trial was held at Stean by kind permission of Lord Vesty and his Head Keeper Nick Parker and kindly sponsored by Chapel Farm Dog Food.

Conditions were perfect for the dogs with the odd shower to cool. We were soon finished at dinnertime it was a four-judge system and a big thanks to Adrian and Chris Slater and on the other side Steve Charlton and Richard Wells for giving up their day to judge a big thanks to the unsung heroes stops, game carriers and stewards and everybody that helped put on a good day couldn’t be done without you all.
