Best Lady Handler at the National Amateur Championship
(retired 2015 to Brittany Field Trial Hall of Fame)
The present woman handler's award is an ABC award and was first given in 1966. The first award was given to Lucille LaFleur with Rendezvous Skipper.
The trophy shall be awarded for participation as a handler in the National Amateur Championship. At least three women must participate or the award will not be offered.
It shall be awarded to the woman who does the best job of handling her dog. The dog does not have to place in the stake as the award is made on the merits of the person handling the dog.
The original rules for awarding of the Best Lady Handlers' trophy appear in Fred White's book. They are the rules for the "Ginger Trophy" that was donated by Mr. & Mrs. Bell who set the requirements for the award.
The present trophy was originally funded by donations from persons at the Nationals with the balance paid by the ABC. The above criteria was established by the Board at the time the trophy was accepted.
