Amen, Think that the U.S. Complete has turned things around and is doing a great job. If we can get the AFTCA on board and will encourage new trailers. Social media is a great way of letting people know about us and our canine athletes.
: A previous post reminded me how important it
: is to promote the field trial sport to
: hunters, other dog people and the general
: public. WE have a magnificent sport that
: showcases some of the best non-human
: athletes in the world. Class bird dogs are
: an amazing thing - running an endurance pace
: across broken country and searching and
: pointing wild or released game birds.
: Most non-sporting people don't even know
: which end of the dog points! ALL of our
: organizations, the American Field, etc all
: need to get the word out and disseminate it
: widely. Our organizations by and large do
: not harm wildlife in any way and in fact
: support the improvement of conditions and
: land uses in support of wildlife
: populations. Look at the millions of
: dollars spent by well financed land owners
: to provide farms, ranches and plantations
: used by our sport. It's a big deal folks.
: Celebrate these dogs, the horses used, the
: people who develop and showcase the dogs and
: the supporters of the sport from all walks
: of life. It distresses me to have watched
: the circulations of the American Field to
: have fallen to the levels of today. Can it
: be reversed and more people understand and
: follow these beautiful animals?
