Last weekend’s Highclere Show welcomed the ever-popular Gundog events to the stunning grounds of Highclere Castle, where dogs and handlers battled it out on the field for those superb prizes.

Kindly organised by Hawcroft Gundogs and kindly sponsored by Muntjac Trading, the competition was fierce for the fantastic cash prizes up for grabs over the 26th & 27th May.

From the Long Retrieve, Up and Over and Short Fence to the Working Test and Juniors, there was some great gundog action taking place.

Well done to all the handlers and dogs who took part and got involved across the weekend!

Take a look at all the results from the Gundog events from the Highclere Show below.
