TRAINING CLASSES
During the competition intervals there
were demonstrations with Neil Varney of
Twistmount Gundogs showing the amazing
energy and versatility of his English Springer
Spaniels while members of SEGS took part
in a Training Session to illustrate some of
the various aspects of handling a gundog.

Junior ‘Have a Go!’ gave some younger
members of the audience the chance to
handle a gundog while the Edenbridge
Express
, a long marked retrieve to find
the day’s quickest dog and open to all
breeds, sponsored by Swaine Gundog
Supplies
, was great entertainment.
A country show is not the easiest place to handle a gundog but all the
competitors entered into the spirit of the event and with something always
going on the two days were a great success!

Grateful thanks to all the helpers, Judges, competitors and our
sponsors Swaine Gundog Supplies, Skinner’s, BASC and Chris Potter
Country Sports
for their generosity and donation of prizes.
