Ms Louise Pinkney (Hydebeck)
Louise bought her foundation bitch in 1976 from Mrs M Saunders, this was her namesake - Erindale Louise. She was mated to Ch. Carrokeel Coillte Merlin, Louise retained Ch. Hydebeck Ballycarrie and she in turn was mated to Ch. Gulliagh Galleon. From this litter Louise kept Ch. Hydebeck Reginald Snuffson and from thence established her own line and has consistently produced the same type of hound putting great emphasis on soundness. Louise is approved to award CCs in our breed at Championship shows.
Mrs Pam Marston-Pollock (Falconcrag)
Pam has lived all her life with hounds, being brought up with various breeds including her mother's top winning Borzois and Otterhounds. Pam continued with the interest in hounds and has been successful in the show ring with various breeds. She now specialises in owning and championing breeds which are on the Kennel Club Import Register and works hard to upgrade their status.
The Kennel Club approved Pam to judge the Hound Group at Championship show level and she awards CCs in 18 Hound breeds with 10 of them being sighthounds.
