Ken­nel Club opens new cen­tre of ex­cel­lence

Sporting Shooter - - News -

Gundogs and gundog clubs gath­ered on the 2-3 Septem­ber in Northum­ber­land for the of­fi­cial open­ing of the Ken­nel Club’s Em­ble­hope and Burn­grange Es­tate. The Ken­nel Club aims to de­velop it as a cen­tre of ex­cel­lence to sup­port a wide range of work­ing dog and shoot­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

The of­fi­cial open­ing of the es­tate saw an in­tro­duc­tion de­liv­ered by Ken­nel Club Chair­man, Si­mon Lux­moore, a tour of the es­tate and its fa­cil­i­ties, and the op­por­tu­nity to ac­com­pany a mock field trial, held by the Scot­tish Field Tri­als As­so­ci­a­tion, so that at­ten­dees could fully ex­pe­ri­ence what the es­tate has to of­fer.

Pur­chased by the Ken­nel Club in 2016, The Em­ble­hope and Burn­grange Es­tate now of­fers both pheas­ant and par­tridge shoot­ing, and the var­ied ter­rain of­fers op­por­tu­ni­ties for all breeds of gundog to demon­strate their nat­u­ral work­ing abil­i­ties.

Wood­land cover pro­vides ex­cel­lent hunt­ing for spaniels, and the 7,550 acres of moor­land are ideal for walked-up tri­alling and train­ing re­triev­ers, spaniels and hunt, point and re­trieve (HPR) breeds.

Any­body wish­ing to en­quire about mak­ing a book­ing on the es­tate can con­tact the ad­min­is­tra­tor via email at em­ble­hope@theken­nel­club.org.uk.
