It was a pleasure to judge this lovely breed, although not always easy due to a variance in type. The top winners moved in that true English Springer way with front legs swinging forward straight from the shoulder giving wonderful effortless reach and power to match coming from behind, this is so special and a joy to watch. I was looking for that beautifully chiselled head which portrays elegance without weakness and was delighted to find it in the top winners. I do not believe in fault judging but judging the whole dog with breed type and movement very much in mind.
