Hindmarsh impresses in Te Araroa trial
THE Te Araroa Dog Trial Club hosted the Poverty Bay Dog Trial Centre's third trial of the season on Friday and Saturday and it was a successful one.
The club offered a big thank you to all those who made it such a successful trial, with special thanks going to the McNeil family who supplied the sheep, and to Ashley and Moana Brooking for hosting the four judges.
The steak sandwiches at the grounds were also a big hit.
The Te Araroa Club is looking forward to celebrating their centennial trial in 2022.
