European Field Trial Championships
Every year the Vizsla European Field Trial Championships also known as the Europa Cup are hosted by a different country and their respective Vizsla Club. This, the milestone twentieth year is no different and is set to be held in the breeds homeland, Hungary. The purpose of the Championship as set out in its manifesto is “to provide a selection of dogs from across Europe in good health and well proportioned according to the standard of the breed, which hunt efficiently in a breed appropriate style in a top class international competition in order to provide an essential contribution to the selection of the genetically best transmitting dogs for the improvement of the hunting ability of the Magyar Vizsla. It offers hunters and dog lovers the opportunity of meeting each other in a top class competition in order to stimulate the interest for using the Magyar Vizsla as a hunting dog and to promote the sport.” It is a prestigious event for the breeds both smooth and wirehaired and with that in mind the event crowns the new Vizsla European Field Trial Champion for that year.
The incumbent Team Captain, Richard Chellumbrun has attended and represented Team GB for all but 2 years since 2006 and this year was no exception.
