*Master Charles wants us to use this word advisedly
Thanks to all who took part. It was an impressive turnout helped no doubt by a beautiful day and a great new course. It started with a wonderful view of Cowdray House and 'rode' exceptionally well, we are told. We'd like to thank in particular those members of the Hunt who helped out with stewarding and trouble-shooting, but we must thank above all Joan Langmead (that's Mrs Langmead on yesterday's Puppy Show posting) and Nadine Crouch who made it all happen seamlessly....
Rufus Uloth says "Isn't my winner's plate shiny and new and worth securing for all time? I think so. Oh, and thank you to - and in no particular order - Trish Morley, Alison Owen and Suzanne Garner in the tent. Jump Stewards Katrina Mardles, Stuart and Clare and Thomas, Jo Chase, Peter Sherratt and Julia Edwards, Charles MFH, Barry and Patrick, Joy Mayes, Harriet and William Hextall and Ann Wadey. Deborah Boulton was 'sweeper'* and Tim Mardles and Mark Teear dashed around helpfully all day. It could not happen without the patronage of Lord Cowdray and the practical help of Robert Windle and Donald MacDonald and many others on the Estate. And Harry Potter (the pony not the diminuitive trainee wizard).”

“Taffeta came to us as a 9 week old foxhound puppy during the summer of 2010. I tried to keep her on her own outside, but foxhounds are pack animals, and she made it clear that was not an option! So she moved into the house, and immediately bonded with our labrador Minnie. They slept together, and Taffeta was soon house trained and very much part of the family. Her favourite trick was to sneak upstairs from the conservatory, and steal a teddy bear from the bedroom!
Eventually, she had to go back to the Kennels and learn how to become a proper foxhound! But we have kept in touch with her. Initially taking her for walks in Petworth Park with our dogs, and latterly seeing herout hunting when I was either mounted or on foot. She has never forgotten my voice, and always seeks me out, rather than the other way round. It is so rewarding to be able to keep up with Taffeta, and the bond will always be there.
We also had fun at the 2011 Puppy Show. I was very proud when Taffeta came 2nd in her class and I went up to receive my engraved tumbler bearing her name!
Sage has told me that she is a good working hound, and he may breed from her next year. So who knows, I may get Taffeta back here for whelping with her own puppies in the future!”
