Graham Burnip

Huntsman/Master

Grahams hunting journey started when he moved to Wrexham, a stones throw away from the Wynnstay Hunt kennels. Every morning Graham would watch the hounds pass on early morning exercise.

He used to go over to the hunt stables and help the Hunt grooms with exercising the horses. When the opportunity came up to do second horses for the hunt, he jumped at the opportunity and his love for hunting was born.
Graham has hunted with the Wynstay Hunt, The North Shropshire and The Tanantside Hunt where he was a Master. When Emily came along they hunted together and where rarely seen out on the hunting field without each other.
When the advertisement for the Cheshire Bloodhounds came about - A new clean boot pack! We decided to give it ago. We were bitten by the bug and when they disbanded the idea for the BBHC came along! 

Graham is now the proud Huntsman to 10 and a half couple of Beagle Hounds, that he has trained from puppies and has now started his own breeding line which he is incredibly proud of.

Emily Burnip

Field Master

Emily has ridden since she was two years old and had her first pony squirt for her fifth birthday.

She grew up hunting and was an active member of both the Wynnstay and North Shropshire pony clubs in the Games and Show Jumping teams.

However her first love was hunting and she was a regular face at both the Wynnstay and North Shropshire hunt with her father Graham.

When she was fourteen she discovered cleanboot hunting with the Cheshire Bloodhounds where she never missed a weekend. 

When they disbanded we where at a loss for somewhere to go, with no drag or cleanboots near by she couldnt wait to be involved with the new idea of the BBHC.

Michelle Burnip

Secetary

Michelle has ridden since she was 12 years old, where everyday she would go to the riding school not far from her childhood home. This is where her passion for riding began and when Emily came along we couldn't wait to get her first pony. Michelle and Emily would do endless activities enjoying every minute of there horsey time together including many fun rides and show jumping.

When Emily's passion for hunting began it was early 4am starts with Jam sandwiches for breakfast. 

"One of my highlights of Hunting was puppy walking. In the past I have walked 4 couple of English and Welsh Hounds. I also visited local landowners to open country up for local Hunts in our area for a hunting day.''

Michelle's love of Beagles started when her and Graham were invited to the German Hound show.

''It has been a privilege to help Graham and Emily with the beagles and has been a joy to watch them grow into mature hounds that they are to date.''
