I'm going as it is just down the road. They are predicting temperatures of 35 plus in Peterborough, so hot that for the first time in living memory they have relaxed the dress code and will allow staff to show in whitecoats and bowlers over shirt and tie, rather than forcing them to stand in full hunt kit.
We went. They didn't relax the dress code though. We had to show outside if full scarlet as the Foxboy's were inside under cover. We did have troughs to throw the hounds in before & after showing so they coped OK. We got 7 1sts Champ Doh & Reserve Champ Bitch. So had a very good day getting home at 11pm!!
They did in afternoon but by then it wasn't worth changing then. But a least the hounds didn't suffer. Was a cracking day & unentered hounds showed well considering it was their first show. Roll on Lowther & Rydal!!
Karla never judge when or comment if you dont know the facts. I have never been blooded.The pic is of me after the last legal days hunting when after jumping a 5'10" wall my horse pecked on landing & then caught me in the face with his hoof. Sorry in delay in replying but been away on holiday.
