Lovely day out at this show, the sheep arrived and returned home to A Mosey's farm (thank you very much) very smoothly and mainly behaved well, though a small issue with breaking out of release pen into the wood behind could have been awkwed... and a strong class of Best Conditioned dogs was won by R Cole's Tweedale Stella.

A quick request. Please, please remember the trials are run by volunteers, they are not you, the competitor's, employees. They are there before the start, setting up, sorting sheep, tracking trophies, and some have traveled a couple of hours to do this.They will still be there at the end, taking the course down, and sorting the prizes for those who have gone home.
It's a day out, it's a Show trial, it's very public.
Just be kind, and enjoy the day.

There are hundreds of local trials held every year, ranging from small events with few facilities up to medium and large size events with catering and often other side events to keep the interest not only of dedicated sheepdog people but also of the more cosmopolitan members of the general public.
Please Note For a trial to be considered a Qualifying Trial for a National Trial it must not be run as part of a novice or nursery trial and it must be open to all with no unreasonable restriction or qualification, either geographical or in any other way. A minimum of 25 dogs must compete at the Trial. The course must be a National style course that includes a drive element. The trial must be advertised on the ISDS website at least one week before the trial date, or details published in a copy of the local agricultural press (in Southern Ireland this being the Farmers Journal) with publication being on a date before the trial date.
NOTE: Where a Trial is advertised as a Single Session, and then run as Two Sessions (morning & afternoon) ONLY the morning session will be considered as a Qualifying Trial for the Nationals
Please email details of your trials as soon as possible to email@example.com, giving date, venue, how to get there and postcode if possible (for Sat Nav users), type of trial (Open, Novice, Nursery, Brace etc), whether entries are on the field or in advance, and a contact phone number (and email if available).
