There have been Golden Retrievers at Horham since 1974 when I bought my first bitch, Bryony (Temuir Bryony of Horham). Although I bred from her, I wasn't in a position to keep a puppy at that time.

In 1976 Rosie (Bell Blonde of Horham) came to join us, and in 1981 I kept both puppies from her final litter they were Boot (Sh Ch Horham Masterful Mistri) and Bottle (Horham Saucy Kittyhawk). It is from Bell Blonde of Horham that all current Horhams are descended a total of 8 generations.

In 1986 my home-bred Boot achieved his Show Champion title when he was awarded his 3rd Challenge Certificate by the late Fred Triptree, and also went Best of Breed at Crufts at the same time. Boot's previous Challenge Certificates, also with Best in Show awards, had been won the previous year at Eastern Counties Golden Retriever Club and Midland Golden Retriever Club's Championship shows respectively. Boot also won Best Veteran Dog, aged 10, at the Northern Golden Retriever Association's Championship Show in 1991 under Shirley Crick.

Although my dogs have only been lightly shown in recent years, I have now bred and/or owned a total of five Stud Book number winners (Horham Masterful Mistri, Horham Barraband, Horham Nemesia, Cattrysse Raindancer for Horham and Kailzie Captain Jack Horham). Currently, three of my youngest dogs can be seen in the show ring from time to time.

Until the end of 2013, I was a member of the Kennel Club's Assured Breeder Scheme, and although I have now withdrawn from the ABS, Horham puppies continue to be raised with its requirements and standards in mind. Although we only breed the occasional litter, we always look for permanent, loving homes for all our puppies.
