silver double.pngThe Hound Trailing Association has lost the first three months of the season, but an easing of lockdown restrictions enabled the Championship to get underway at Wardhall on Saturday.

A total of 87 hounds contested the four trails with the highlight a one-two in the pups for the Dearham kennel of Joseph Abram.

The first three pups in a field of 28 had pulled clear of the rest and on the run-in Silver Mist beat Silver Dancer by ten yards.

It was a pleasing start for the winning owners Nicola McMaster, Sharon Taylor and Darren McMaster.

In the seniors last year’s championship runner-up Miterdale Shadow got off to a winning start, jumping the last fence really well to forge nicely clear of Acorn.

Easiest winner of the day, though, was Thorn Fire in the veterans, going well clear for Martin and Molly Burrows and Joanna Satterthwaite.

Brian and Joy Lister also started the competitive season with a win as Release the Beast took the open maidens. miterdale shadow.png
