The Gamefair Hatfield House

Safely home from The Gamefair after an enjoyable but exhausting week. Thursday was a very difficult day, certainly the hottest day I have experienced in the UK and in getting everything ready for the show opening the following day, according to my "Fitbit", I managed to walk 17 kilometres!

The show went very well for us with the gundogs, we had over 20 different breeds of gundogs in the Sporting Dog Pavilion as well as a full three-day programme of events and demonstrations in the working dog ring.  The hot weather broke on Thursday night, and we had some terrific thunderstorms and torrential rain so a huge thankyou to Ridgeline of New Zealand for providing our waterproof clothing. The highlight of the show for me was watching Ben Potter fly his Steller’s Sea Eagle a huge and magnificent bird and it really drew the crowds.  You can see a full gallery of pictures from the show by clicking HERE.
