Roll up, roll up to Rydal: Which hound gets your nod?

  • The Rydal Hound Show in Cumbria is one of the highlights of the summer hound showing season. It is set in the beautiful surroundings of Rydal Park which is close to Ambleside.

    Local pack the Coniston hold their own hound show before the open Fellhound classes take place, with their Dazzle taking the honours. The pack’s Lyric later went on to be awarded the entered bitch hound title before being awarded the reserve championship in the Fellhound classes.

    Blencathra Saddler 14, winner of the entered doghound class stood as the Fellhound champion before going on to land the supreme show championship ahead of the winners from the harrier, beagle and terrier rings.

    Aside from the hound shows, visitors could also enjoy the sheepdog trials and Fellhound racing as well as browsing through the trade stands.

    A full report and results are in the 18 August issue of the magazine and to see further images from the show here
