The 2019 Novice Field Trial was held in December on Drummond Estate, Crieff, with kind permission Garry Ford and David Wallace. Our 3rd and last trial in the 2019 season, was well supported. We ran with a full card of 16 Novice dogs. The day was exceptionally wet, cold and generally a miserable winters day, however Garry managed to produce a fabulous selection of game despite the weather. Young novice dogs were tested for their steadiness and their marking ability with a duck drive, which produced some very exciting retrieves.
Judges on the day were Dick Sorley, Rab Fair, Michael Brown and James Stephenson.
