Since 1997, the annual Dogs for All Seasons Classic is held at Pheasant Ridge with demonstrations of training techniques for young gun dogs and a training clinic for champion hunters. This retriever club was formed in 1995 by Diane Gering (Windrush Labradors) and Nancy Scholz (Manora Labradors). These well-known breeders from Saratoga County, New York have provided dogs and handlers for Pheasant Ridge from the Black Creek Retriever Club as well as members' personal dogs since 1991.
