Do something for the right reasons and nothing can stop you!
We live in Martinsville, Indiana which is about 25 miles south of Indianapolis. We have two girls, Mikayle and Carlie. We became interested in field trial dogs when we bought our first Vizsla, Duke. We decided to get a Vizsla after lots of research on what breed would fit with our lifestyle. We turned to Vizslas and we fell in love with the breed.
Competing with sporting dogs has been a tradition in my family. My late Great Grandfather, Hyatt Doan competed in Fox Hound trials in the late 1960's and was very successful, winning numerous trophies which we cherish today. My Grandfather, Robert White hunted behind English Pointers beginning in his teenage years and continued unil he was 79 years old. I also have cousins and uncles who still hunt with their English Pointers that my Grandfather bred. I tell all of my family members who are hunting with their Pointers that, "life is too short to hunt with an ugly dog!" No honestly I love the looks of a pointer, I just admire the verstility of the Vizsla.
Competing in horseback field trials is our family hobby. Although it is a hobby, we work very hard with our dogs so that we can be truly competitive on every level of competition. We have been successful and won on every front of horseback competition. We have been fortunate enough to win futurities, classics, championships and national championships on both the American Kennel Club (AKC) and American Field (AF) side with several different dogs. We are successfully campaigning, breeding and producing NATIONAL CALIBER CHAMPION bird dogs that are companion dogs. We are truly dedicated to the sport and dearly love the quality time we spend with our girls and our dogs.
