The Farmers Bloodhound "Team"
Brian Temple (Senior Master)
Brian is the senior master and huntsman of the FBH. He took over the running of the FBH in 2009, ably assisted by Debbie, his wife and his family. Now entering his 9th season as Huntsman his efforts and dedication to the pack has led to The Farmers Bloodhounds becoming one of the most renowned Bloodhound packs in the country.
Jamie Temple (Master)
Son of Huntsman/Master Brian. Jamie has taken on the role of Field Master and Second Field Master regularly over the last few years and has a large hand to play in The Farmers Bloodhound fundraisers organising The Summer Ball, Hunter Trial and being on the committee of the Point to Point.
Ian Wills (Master)
Ian joins the mastership for the 2017/2018 season. His ability to cross country is never in doubt with a background of eventing and point to pointing to fall back on. His friendly nature and competitive spirit will no doubt prove to be a huge asset as the season progresses.
Heather Moodie (Master)
Heather has joined as a master this year and will be alongside Brian, Jamie, Ian
and Dave. Heather has team chased for many years and hunted with many packs
around the country. We welcome Heather to the team.
Dave Pratley (Whip)
Dave has become a vital member of The Farmers Bloodhound team and gives up a lot of his personal time to help set up days as well as whipping in every Sunday. He is a vital asset in the smooth running of the hunt.
Ginny Oakley Pope (Hon Secretary)
Ginny has been on the FBH team from the start being a family friend of the Temples who in a weak moment agreed to take on the job of secretary! She is better known as a side saddle rider, trainer and writer.
Paul Buddin (Photography & Website)
Since The Farmers Bloodhounds moved to Plum Park Farm in 2009 Paul has been instrumental in running our websites and emails. Since then Paul has developed a love for photography and his photos can now be seen after nearly every meet and the odd one has even won a prize in The Horse and Hound. Keep an eye out for his drone this season, it's his latest toy!
Often the first smiling face you will see, Belinda is there to welcome you to the meet and will then collect cap and disclaimers. Away from meet days Belinda will consistently be found mucking out kennels and walking puppies. The Buddin family are another vital cog in The Farmers Bloodhound machine.
You will often see Belinda and Jenny working together collecting cap and disclaimers as you arrive at the meet. Jenny is also heavily involved in the organisation and running of our point to point and has been an integral part of the team since 2009.
