Bolton Castle, North Yorkshire

A very enjoyable day was had by all despite the initial weather conditions!  Late morning the sun shone and stayed with us for the rest of the day. 

The handlers were split into 2 groups in the morning.  Headkeeper Ian Sleightholme very kindly took one group and shared his extensive knowledge of the moor and how to work dogs on there the most effective way.  Gill Pillinger took the other group also offering her advice to the handlers on using the wind, steadiness etc.  After a late lunch Ian took each handler for a further run on a fresh part of the moor.

Thank you to Janet Sunter, Ian, Gill & everyone who attended the day and helped to make it a success
