Open Show - Judge Linda Gent
held at Middleton Cheney Village Hall
Saturday 15th April 2017
Bedlignton Terrier Judge Mrs Linda Gent (Fraxinella)
It was an honour to judge the BTA Open Club show and a big thank you to the committee members who worked hard throughout the day to make it an enjoyable day for all.
As I retired from showing 12 years ago and not judged for a while I hadn’t seen any of the exhibits before so it was quite refreshing.
I was pleased to see the breed had improved with regard to substance and very few exhibits were lightweight and shelley.  Movement has also improved since I last judged.
A few points to address in the breed would be ears getting a little too large and thick.  Also wide fronts seem to be creeping into the breed.  The topline in some exhibits was not to the Standard, the Bedlington should have a natural arch over the loin which is aesthetically pleasing but also a necessity whilst working underground.  Quite a few dogs and bitches were carrying their tails higher than I prefer.  Again the Bedlington is a sporting terrier and I do like to see a bit of spirit but it’s not to be encouraged in the show ring, difficult I know.
