The most beautiful landscape and views of the Queensberry Estate was the challenging location for the 48 runners at the 2005 Retriever Championship. With hillsides and terrain that required the dogs to often work out of sight of their handlers, the eventual winner really did have to earn the Championship title. Jim Swindlehurst achieved this with his 5 year old F.T.Ch. Mill Cottage Pathfinder. Congratulations – a most deserving Champion.
