In its five years, Evershot Country Fair has emerged as one of the best attended and premier country shows in the south west and I know that the organisers are hoping for another record turn out.
Our main demonstration is at 2pm and, in addition, we’re running free training clinics for all dog owners at 11:30 and 3:15.
I am going to be helped once again by a loyal band of supporters and dog trainers without whom I could not manage. Foremost amongst these will be Kim with her dogs, including the adorable 6 month old Vizsla, Parsnip, making her arena debut!
We’ve started rehearsing our routine and have quickly discovered that we are going to have to cull about 10 minutes of material to make sure we don’t overrun! But the emphasis will, as always, still be on entertainment and education rather than showing off advanced gundog skills.
We’re a little nervous, as usual. But I’m sure it’ll all be ok. Hope to see as many people as possible, not just on the 18th, but at all of this year’s shows.
