May your dogs always finish to the front, point lots of birds and always demonstrate impeccable manners on their finds. Additionally, may Santa fulfill all your other, unrelated field trial dreams and wishes!
On July 29, 2004, twenty-four friends met at Coney Lake Plantation in Leesburg, Georgia and chartered our Association. The primary goal for the newly formed Association was to promote the highest standards in horseback field trials in the country. It will soon be ten years since this vision was announced.
As you receive and display your 2014 calendars, please go ahead and reserve June 7, 2014 as the date of the Dixie Trace FTA annual meeting and banquet. We will be celebrating our winning dogs for the year, as well as recognizing our charter members at this meeting. Please plan on attending, bring another person interested in birddogs and horses, and help us decide if we are achieving the lofty goal set on that day almost ten years ago. The meeting will once again be held at the Merry Acres Event Center in Albany, Georgia. More details will follow in the coming months, so stay tuned in to our website.
