Ardingly (2018) 2Having missed the Surrey Union Hound show, this was our first outing of the showing season it was a most encouraging start — even though we took no unentered hounds on this occasion. Once again, we faced fierce competition from the four-day-a-week packs, the Heythrop and the VWH who rightly did well all day, but we more than held our own in several classes. In the dog hound classes we were rewarded with the Championship and in the bitches the Local Championship. The judges were: 

Mr Jeremy Reed M.F.H. and Mr Trevor Adams (dogs) 
Mr Richard Tyacke M.F.H. and Mr Charles Clark M.F.H. (bitches)

Cowdray Sponsored Ride


The Cowdray Sponsored Ride took place, not unexpectedly, in Cowdray Country, starting and finishing at Benbow Ponds. We were ridiculously fortunate with the weather. The sun shone all day and, we’re told, there was a record number of entries beforehand and on the day. So well done everyone for turning out and up and taking part. Huge thanks from Macmillan and the CL&C to chief organisers Joan Langmead and Philip Prior. The former’s stewards did a sterling job and there were no calamities of any magnitude. The latter, in charge of the contingent from the Scouts, made the day happen and, as always, we owe him a huge debt of gratitude. Of course, it really couldn’t happen without support from Lord Cowdray and his team at the Estate Office too, for which huge thanks.

Cowdray Sponsored Ride | May 13

SponRide 2013 (1)
And for the third year in a row, possibly fourth, because we have no other photographs, Rufus Uloth says ‘Isn't my winner's plate shiny and new and worth securing for all time? I think so.’ Thus do we tell you that The Cowdray Sponsored Ride (by kind permission of Lord Cowdray) will once again be in aid of the CL&C Hunt and Macmillan Cancer Support. The course will start at Benbow Ponds. Optional jumping, but clearly not for this happy competitor. Barely containing his excitement, year on year on year, Rufus tells us: “You need to know that the Cowdray sponsored ride takes place again on May 13! I can barely contain my excitement! Be a winner like me! And get a shiny plate made of solid silver (-y coloured metal).”

See what the fuss is about.
