Luka wins his 2nd CC.

Fabulous results from the Richmond Championship show this afternoon, where Lyra’s son, young Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) was awarded Best Dog & his second Challenge Certificate along with Best of Breed, also for the second time, following the same result in June at Windsor Championship.

Judge Jeff Horswell then also awarded Luka’s uncle, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM, the Reserve Dog CC along with Vest Veteran in Breed & Luka’s Show Champion Uncle Belatarr Hercules 1st in Open Dog too.

Many congratulations to Jenny & David on another great day with their boys – we are super proud and excited today!

Big win For Belatarr Venus.

Lyra’s puppies have been enjoying some top results this year and another big day was had by young Belatarr Venus (Iris) who had two different shows at the same venue on 24th Aug. First came the North Riding Gundog Club where she was awarded 1st in Graduate and RBOB, then the main event came next at the North of England HPR Club Show where she took 1st in Post Graduate and went Best of Breed under judge Ashleigh Frost before going on to take Reserve Best in Show under judge Leslie Forfar.

Big congratulations to Andy and Alyson for their super day!

From an impressive line-up of BOBs, I shortlisted 4 for further consideration…. RBIS Forster’s Belatarr Venus. Hungarian Wire Haired Vizsla. A bitch with substance whilst remaining feminine. Head and expression typical of her breed. Correct reach of neck into well-laid shoulders. Big ribbed body. She stands on well-boned legs with good feet. Presented in hard condition and in good harsh wiry coat. Moved well with reach and drive.

Triple wins at Windsor.

A fabulous day for Jenny & David’s Belatarr boys at the Windsor Championship Show, where long-time breed specialist judge Rob McMaster awarded first places to Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM (Veteran), Belatarr Jupiter (Post Graduate Dog) & Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules (Open Dog).

All three then went head to head amongst the other class winners in the line-up Best Dog, and it was Lyra’s son, young Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) who beat his two uncles to be awarded Best Dog alog with his very first Challenge Certificate, this coming after he picked up his first Reserve CC and earned his Kennel Club Stud Book Number just 2 months ago at the WELKS Championship. Uncle Hercules was then awarded the Reserve Dog CC, with Uncle Charlie completing the set as Best Veteran in Breed.

But even better was to come when Luka went on to be awarded his first Champ Show Best of Breed and the privilege of representing the breed in the Gundog Group. Luka has so far been unbeaten in his Champ show classes throughout the whole year and this was a thrilling new high for his show career. Huge congratulations to Jenny & David!

LKA Completes Sensational Show Year for Belatarr!

Held on Dec 16th, LKA was the final Championship show of the year and proved to be one of the most memorable that we’ve ever attended. Presided over by judge Eileen Hughes, Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules was named Best Dog and won his 2nd CC of 2018, his 5th in total, moving him into 3rd place in the list of all-time highest-awarded HWV males!

A lovely masculine dog who moved effortlessly round the ring with reach and drive due to well-laid shoulders and good rear angulation. A harsh coat finished the picture. Correct length in body with a firm topline. Typical masculine head and tight feet. A well deserved CC.

Eileen Hughes

A fabulous result and one with which we would have been thrilled to complete what has been an amazing show year, but the bitch classes brought another thrill as Billie, Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM, was awarded Best Bitch, collecting an astonishing 6th CC of the year and taking her total tally of Challenge Certificates to 12, making her the all-time 2nd highest awarded HWV Bitch (by a very considerable margin.)

 “A beautiful mature bitch who moves so fluidly with lots of reach and drive.Attractive feminine head, correct harsh coat, good length and depth of body, an excellent example of the breed. CC & BOB.

Eileen Hughes

Brother and sister then went head to head for Best of Breed and Billie emerged victorious, earning the privilege of representing the breed in the Gundog Group Challenge – what a day!

Best Bitch and Best Dog, Billie and Herc, with very proud Dad Tim!

Midland Counties Championship.

Another superb Champ show outing for Belatarr under breed specialist Doreen Smillie-Gray at Midland Counties saw Belatarr North by Northwest awarded 1st place from a large Limit Dog class:

Best moving dog in this class, good head with a kind expression, very good topline which he holds on the move, good depth of rib. Lovely angulation and good clean front. Coat is good. Well muscled and a happy boy.

Doreen Smillie-Gray

With his big brother Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules picking up the Reserve Dog CC:

Older boy than my winner but could not be denied the RCC. He moves out with style and power, good muscle and depth, correct angulation and lovely head and expression. Another quality dog.

Doreen Smillie-Gray

and their older sister, Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson Sh CM awarded Best Bitch, winning her 5th CC of the year and an incredible 11th in total:

Coming up to 7 years old and I have never seen her look so good. She looks stunning on the stand, very good coat. Good depth of rib and excellent angulation. Like my Dog CC is made correct so moves correctly with power and style.

Whilst, two weeks later, Breed specialist Ed Casey was the judge at this year’s Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association Open Show and he selected Billie, Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson as his Best Bitch and Reserve Best in Show:

Upstanding Bitch of excellent type, like her head, pleasing eye colour and shape, good furnishings, strong neck, excellent front, straight forelegs, bone and feet.  Strong firm topline, well-developed ribs, good depth of chest.  A little long in loin perhaps, tail well set and carried.  Strong and well muscled quarters, well-angulated rear.  Excellent coat of pleasing texture.  Moved out freely in all directions.  BB & RBIS

Richmond Championship Show.

Richmond Championship Show has always been a special show for Belatarr and we have enjoyed some memorable wins here over the past few years. 2018 proved to be no exception and the Belatarr boys enjoyed a superb morning under the UK’s most highly qualified Show Judge, Zena Thorne-Andrews, with Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules winning Best Dog and collecting his first CC of the year, and his4th CC in total:

Lovely to go over, his front is well under the body and supporting his weight properly. Maybe a little thick in back skull. Nicely set ears, sound legs and thick feet, Excellent body and quarters, he travels over the ground smoothly and easily.

Zena Thorn-Andrews

With his brother, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM close on his heels as he is awarded his 7th Reserve Dog CC:

Res CC. I did like his quality head and outlook. Close up in all respects with moderate angulation & excellent coat. Just has a tendency to rise a little too much over rump. His construction is as above (i.e. as in his brother), very good indeed.

Zena Thorn-Andrews
