The North Missouri Field Trial Association hosted a weekend horseback field trial on October 6-7 at the Sportsmen's Grounds near Grovespring, Mo. The stakes were both open and amateur. We were pleased to see some new faces as well as some familiar faces at our trial. The weather cooperated, and the grounds were in good shape to really show the dogs off. We want to thank all who participated, and a big thank you to Danny Draffen, Steve Auxier, and Tim Penn for sitting in the judges' saddles and giving the dogs their full attention. We also want to thank Jack Glover for helping out with dog wagon duties and early morning breakfast duties, as well as Tony King for his all-around help with the trial.
We would like to thank Purina Pro Plan for helping sponsor this event. Purina does so much for our sport, and we really appreciate their sponsorship. It is the work and participation of all that help make up a great event. The participation and dedication of the good folks who come to these trials make all the hard work worthwhile.
