Wisdom wins the day Despite a couple of heavy showers in the morning, the glorious warm sunshine came out in time for the serious judging of the 109th Rydal Hound Show and there was a relaxing and joyful atmosphere as hunting enthusiasts, who had travelled from all over the country to support the show, caught up with friends – old and new. A first time visiting to the show was Lieutenant General Sir Barney White Spunner former head of the UK Field Army, a regular contributor to The Field magazine, former editor of baileys and president of the association of masters of Harriers and Beagles. Sir Barney has recently been appointed Executive Chairman of the Countryside Alliance and wanted to address the crowd on how the Countryside alliance is helping the future of Hunting.The entries for Foxhounds, Harriers and Beagles were of a very good standard. In the Beagle Show, Mrs Katie Higgs of Leighton Buzzard and Mr Iain Storer from the Glyn Celyn Beagles selected Newcastle and District entered bitch Wisdom as their champion for the second year running while The Old Berkeley Planet won best of the opposite sex and the Warwickshire won the best group. At 1pm, a presentation was made to David Grayling of Grayling Fine sporting books of Shap, who retires this year from the Rydal committee after many years of building the beagle show which now attracts 14 packs. David received a leather bound copy of Vergin’ on the ridiculous a collection of stories by de Courcy Parry otherwise known as Dalesman and a great supporter of Rydal. Ian Wear of the Bleasdale Beagles now joins the committee as the Beagle expert. David also made his own presentation to Patrick Till, who has been David’s right hand man at Rydal for many years. The knowledgeable Mr Alan Thomas MH from the Easton Harrier judged the show of Harriers and chose Pendle Forest entered dog Forger as the Champion, with reserve going to Holcombe Barrister. The High Peak took the best couple of Harrier Dogs and the best Group and best couple of harrier bitches also went to the Holcombe. Once the Harrier show was over, the ring saw a new addition – the young dog handlers competition which attracted a lot of interest in the 3 classes of hound, sheepdog and other dog handlers Otis Ferry, MFH of the South Shropshire flew back from fishing in Ireland to join Julian Barnfield of the Heythrop to judge the Show of Fell Foxhounds. They chose Melbreak Duchess as both the champion and overall best walked. As well as the Robert Logan Memorial Trophy, Huntsman Edward Liddle also won a print given by Hounds Magazine and a beautiful framed print of the 6 fell packs and their hunting country given by R and J equine. The best of the opposite sex went to the 2011 champion foxhound Ullswater Stormer walked by huntsman John Harrison. The Ullswater also won the Visitor’s challenge trophy for the best group while the Coniston won the Dora Marley salver for the best couple with Rascel and Sonnet. Local terrier expert Jess Cowan from Cockermouth made decisive work of the terrier judging choosing Melbreak Crag, the patterdale terrier walked by J Jackson as champion and Lunesdale Barney as reserve walked by T Winn. In the show of Coniston Foxhounds earlier in the day, judge huntsman Barry Todhunter of the Blencathra chose Sonnet as the winner of the Anthony Chapman trophy for the champion hound while a new trophy the Owen Balding memorial trophy given by Rosslyn Balding and family for the reserve champion was also won by the Cummings family from Millom with the unentered bitch Dido. All the judges came together at 3.30pm to choose Newcastle and District Wisdom as Supreme Champion of show receiving both the Bruce Logan Memorial Challenge Trophy and a Border Fine arts “Border Terriers” kindly given by Hannah Robinson china of Ambleside. It was a popular choice as Wisdom showed herself to be an excellent mover, full of energy with great confirmation. Rupert Gibson was delighted as it’s the first time he has won supreme champion of show at Rydal and said of Wisdom that she is as good in the show ring as she is in the hunting field This year’s Sheepdog Trials attracted the highest number of entries for many years with over a 100 runners and 5 double dog runners. The committee had taken the decision earlier in the year to upgrade the Rydal Class from a novice to a novice and open, so winners of both the Rydal and Le Fleming Classes are eligible to claim points towards the nationals. Mr Goulding of Cockermouth with Rock won class 1 of the Rydal Class with 68 points and in the Rydal Open class, judge Mrs Carol Palmer awarded Mr D Carlton of Clitheroe with Ann the winner with 77 points, narrowly beating both Mr Longton and Tot and Mr Davis and Anja – both with 76 points. In the Le Fleming stakes, judge William Bell awarded Mr H Hutchinson with Bob 75 points making this partnership the winner, just ahead of J Jackson with Spark with 73 points. Meanwhile the winner of the double dogs went to Mr Jim Cropper and Bacup with Jess and Black. Next years show will be held on Thursday 15th August 2013, so if you have not yet sampled this traditional, authentic hound show in the spectacular Lakeland fells, then put it on the list for next year.
