International Sheep Dog Trial 2017
September 8, 2017 - September 10, 2017£7.50
The International Sheep Dog Trial, the pinnacle in the sheep dog trialling calendar, is to be held on Friday 8th to Sunday 10th September 2017 at Lodge Park, Northleach. The purpose of a Sheep Dog Trial is to test the abilities of the best working dogs, in an environment close to true working life.
During the three days the top 60 handlers, made up of teams of 15 handlers and their dogs from each of the nations – England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales – will be competing against each other to determine an overall ‘International Supreme Champion’. All handlers are seeking to win this prestigious individual award, however there is also the team competition, and the individuals will have a strong desire for their nation to win this.
Days 1 and 2 of the event consist of the 60 handlers competing to qualify for a place within the Supreme Championship, which is held on day 3. The Supreme Competition is restricted to the 15 highest pointed dogs from the Qualifying Trials irrespective of Country or Class. The Brace Championship and Young Handler Competition also take place during the weekend. In addition to the trialling there will also be a number of trade stands and a modest craft fair.
Standard admission £7.50, under 14s are free.
