Mazie Davis, Sherry Ray Ebert

A Tribute to Sherry Ray Ebert

Early in 1973, I attended my first field trial in a scouting capacity for my husband Colvin Davis who was, at the time, competing with shooting dogs. And I met Sherry there for the first time as we rode side by side scouting. I was nervous, of course and she could tell. I will always recall her looking me square in the eye and saying “You sit a horse well. You can do this — just believe in yourself.”



Running Dog


Strideaway is an online publication founded in 2008. We are dedicated to promoting the great sport of American pointing dog field trials, in particular American Field sanctioned trials for pointers and setters. Our objective is to present the voices and ideas of experienced trainers, handlers, breeders and other knowledgeable participants and enthusiasts from the past to the present — amateurs and professionals alike. Whether All-Age or Shooting Dog, Horseback or Walking Trials, we place particular emphasis on wild bird field trials and the dogs that compete in them. We present richly illustrated articles and stories, podcast interviews and other types of media on a regular basis with the hope of providing an ever expanding, searchable archive of information relevant to pointing dog field trials.Read article

This website is dedicated to our ever faithful friend and Strideaway contributor, Bill Allen, whose book The Unforgettables and Other True Fables we published in 2010.
