As the ink is drying on the 2018-2019 field trial season, I hope each of you made some unforgettable memories of good dogs, good horses, good food, good venues, good performances, most importantly good friends. All too often our dogs’ best efforts are witnessed only by ourselves, when the most cherished ones are shared with friends.
Congrats to all the winners!
