Welcome to Windosr for a veryspecial 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.
