Exciting News-Hungarian Vizsla Club is Granted Open FT Status
I am delighted to advise that today I received a letter from the KC that the HVC has been awarded permission to host Open Field Trials.
What fabulous news for the Club and such a massive milestone after being one of the pioneering clubs establishing HPR trialling in the 1970s.
Many of the people I approached to request support for our application had assumed that the HVC already had Open FT status, so it was very gratifying to learn that the level of support registered with the KC , and I quote, “was so immense.”
Through this medium and others I wish to convey my sincere thanks, and those of the Club, to those people and clubs who responded in a timely and kindly way to our request for written support for our application. You made a significant and decisive contribution to the grant of permission.
Thanks also go to those friends and colleagues in the shooting and HPR trialling community who canvassed on our behalf with their friends and colleagues and offered so much encouragement along the way.
I would also like to thank the Kennel Club and their relevant committees and sub-committees, and to the key individuals in the Working Dogs Activities Department which gave advice and encouragement along the way. The process, which seemed daunting at times, was eased along by very kindly and knowledgeable people. If the KC can say “immense”, I can say in return “impeccable”.
Open field trial status for the HVC has been a long time coming, and now it is a reality. The club, an early pioneer of HPR trialling, has finally arrived at the upper echelon of HPR trialling clubs and this can only help to further enhance the status of the Vizsla as a working HPR, and encourage newcomers into the field.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am at this news.
All the best,
