Robin Gates

Robin Gates ~ Photos from 2006 – 2019

Please excuse the delay on getting this accomplished. As many of you know, both Mazie and I wear multiple caps. During the last couple of months, we’ve been focused on the Youth Field Trial Alliance website, the development of which is in full swing. We plan to launch it very soon.

Mazie wrote a beautiful tribute to Robin last month for the May/June issue of Pointing Dog Journal which should be out any day. We’ll publish her tribute here on Strideaway some time after that.

In the meantime, here are my photographs of Robin taken the first year we met in Broomhill in 2006 through to the 2019 Masters All-Age Championship held last year at Burnt Branch Plantation, Ochlocknee, Georgia.

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.
