The Home Nation Field Trial for Retriever Gundogs held at Windsor Great Park on 28th November 2016 by gracious invitation of H.M. Queen Elizabeth 11 & H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh - Head Ranger & Mr P Sedgwick - Deputy Range. The Judges; Duchess of Devonshire DL, Mr William Meldrum RVO LVO, Mr Peter Bates & Mr John Stubbs MVO Steve. Steward of the Beat: Mr Peter Clayton RVO
Welcome to Windosr for a very special gundog trial to celebrate Her Majesty's 90th Birthday.
The concept of our invitation trail featuring teams from England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland was the idea of Windsor Head-keepers Peter Clayton and Joh Stubbs (retired) - a sort of gundog equilvalent of the Six Nations rugby.
Windsor has a rich tradition of field trials and we are delighted to welcome Her Majesty to today's competition, and wish all the dogs and handlers a very enjoyable day.
