CLA Game Fair, Blenheim Palace - 22nd - 24th July 2011

We have just returned from n excellent but exhausting weekend at the Country Landowners Association Game Fair at Blenheim Palace.

I was there with the
Sporting Irish Water Spaniel Club, where we were giving demonstrations of the dogs working as well as having dogs in the Working Dogs Pavilion for people to see and ask questions of their owners / handlers.

Whilst we were primarily there to work the dogs, we also had a thoroughly good time, I can also now cross hijack and take a mobility scooter for a ride off my bucket list.

Even though I was there for the full three days I did not get to see too much in the main arena, but I did make the time to watch the final of the Arena Polo competition that had been t=running for the three days. Europe beat South America 6 - 5 in the final.
