The Bluegrass Classic SDT May 18-22 2016

Recommended Posts

One of the North America's largest, oldest, and most prestigious sheepdog trials is less than two months away. Held in beautiful Masterson Station Park in Lexington KY, the Bluegrass is a trial that has been described by a well-respected UK handler/judge as the equivalent of any National-level trial in the world.


The Bluegrass consists of two two-day USBCHA-sanctioned Open trials; four USBCHA-sanctioned Nursery classes; two classes each of Ranch, Pro-Novice, and Novice; and a Double Lift International Shed Final on Sunday with the top 20 teams (by combined score from the two Open trials) competing for the Championship.


The sheep are fresh sheep and challenging. The fields are scopey and testing. Handlers come from all over the United States and Canada, and even from overseas to compete. Dog/handler teams may include National Finals winners, Canadian Finals winners, World Championship competitors, ISDS National winners and International Supreme competitors. You will not see a better competition anywhere.


Any trial does not happen in a vacuum, and a trial like this requires a small army of volunteers and sponsors. You can help be a part of the Bluegrass in a number of ways.


You can volunteer to help. No experience is needed. Volunteers are greatly appreciated, and there are many different volunteer slots to be filled. There is something suitable for everyone. Use this link to access information and forms - https://bluegrassclassic.wordpress.com/volunteers/


You can help with financial support. Any level of support is welcome and appreciated. You can be a sponsor at a variety of levels. You can sponsor a class, ribbons, or trophies. You can purchase an ad in our program. Every dollar goes to help produce this world-class trial. The link to the sponsorship/ad form is here - https://bluegrassclassic.wordpress.com/class-sponsorships-and-advertisements/


You can be a part of this venerable, world-class trial that brings out the best in the working Border Collie and his/her handler, proving dogs and bitches in a testing and challenging event, helping to secure the future of one of the world's great working breeds. Please be a part of the Bluegrass Classic!
