Cowdray gundog challenge

By Jason Mayhew.

ON April 30, 2022, we held a first on the beautiful Cowdray Estate, a gundog team test. We invited teams from across the country, as well as Belgium and Switzerland, to discover who had the best team and top dog. All of this was organised to raise money for the charity Mind.

The event was sponsored, and prizes donated to auction by Härkila, Skinners Field & Trial, Acme Whistles, Fur Feather & Fin, Fullpip, Hownhall Shooting and The Countryman’s Weekly. Not forgetting the great prizes supplied by Simon Heath Sticks.

Judges for the day were Nick Coats, Collin Pelham, Joy Rose, Di Stevens and Liz Barnes. All of whom are very experienced and fair.

We held five tests in the morning, with teams consisting of five dogs. Each test was carefully developed to make the teams think about their approach.
