NOVICE and OPEN STAKES 3 and 4 November 2008 at the Hamptworth Estate Wiltshire.

The Cocker Club held their Novice and Open Cocker Spaniel Field Trials on 3rd and 4th November 2008 at the Hamptworth Estate, Wiltshire, by kind permission of Mr Donald Anderson. The judges were Andy Robinson and David Chudley.

Both trials were held on superb ground of laid over bracken with light bramble. The keeper, Paul Bowyer worked very hard for us and ensured that all the dogs had very similar ground and birds were in plentiful supply. Paul loves the spaniels and certainly went out of his way to ensure the trial was one of the most successful of the season. The guns were all expert shots, and being trialling people themselves, they knew exactly what was required for the little Cockers. In fact, the winner of the Open stake, Peter Jones, said in his winning speech that the ground must rank amongst the best in the country for spaniel trials. This was praise indeed for the Hamptworth Estate as Peter trials his dogs all over the country and is one of the most respected professional handlers of Cocker Spaniels.

All the dogs had the chance to show off what they could do and an excellent standard of dog work was demonstrated. The winner of the novice stake, Linda Hudson is very new to field trials, this being her first season, and she excelled by taking all the major awards with her little Cocker bitch Timsgarry Eagle. She beat her mentor and trainer Simon Tyers into second place and, in her winning speech, she kindly acknowledged the help he had given her.

A new trophy, The Hedley Millington Memorial Cup, was kindly donated by Mrs Hedley Millington, in memory of Hedley who sadly died recently. Hedley was known as ‘The Cocker Man’ and is fondly remembered by many of the Cocker people.

Peter Jones took the winning trophy in grand style in the open stake and also won the award for the best retrieve of the day with his superb little dog, Wetlands Abe. This qualifies his dog for an entry in the Cocker Championships.

There was a great atmosphere at both trials with handlers being able to laugh at their dog’s misdemeanours. If you have a Cocker you must have a sense of humour as these little dogs can catch you out if attention wavers for a second!

A great day was had by all and thanks to Paul, The Hamptworth Estate and to Skinners Dog Food for sponsoring the trials.
