One man and his dog proved a winning partnership when they competed in one of the world’s most prestigious competitions.

Alan Bray, of Leadenhall, and his four-year-old Border Collie, beat nine other teams to win the Large Agility Stakes final at the Kennel Club Olympia Agility Stakes.

The competition took place at the London International Horse Show at Olympia.

Just to qualify for the final, Alan and Indie competed against the most talented agility dogs and handlers in the country.

Alan, 56, said: “It’s a huge honour. Plus there is the added element for me on a personal level that Indie was the first born of our Upanova dog agility line through my late wife Jayne who we sadly lost to cancer last October.

“Olympia was her favourite and I know she will be very proud of our achievement.”
