Something for everyone but IT COULD BE YOU
The Sheepdog Trial is staged to engage all who are interested in livestock, landscape, heritage and traditional skills. It is a local community event that invites input from Dog Trial competitors across the UK and which draws support from tourists visiting the area. (One couple from Brighton have visited the August Trial each year for the last 27 years, organising their annual holiday around the event to spend a week staying in the area.) If the event prioritises a particular group, it is those who, although they may not know it when they first visit the dog trial, will be the shepherds of the future.
