2020 World Sheepdog Trials 17th to 20th September

World Trial Update regarding Covid-19, Coronavirus

Due to concerns regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), and in accordance with health guidance from the World Health Organisation, and other health authorities we are currently considering our course of action regarding the 2020 World Trial in September.

We ask that when booking accommodation and flights that you do so with careful consideration as we could be forced in the coming weeks to make the decision to postpone the trial. We will continue to monitor the situation and the advice from Official sources.

We appreciate your understanding and will update this message when there is further information. (Posted 9th March 2020)


World Sheepdog Trials

All the world's countries, where there is a recent history of sheepdog handling, are invited to attend this presitgious triennial event in the Sheep Dog calendar. In 2020 we are privileged once again to be holding a Sheep Dog trial within the beautiful grounds of the Castle Howard Estate.

The Castle Howard Estate, which features over 200 listed buildings and monuments, is situated within the Howardian Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty 15 miles north-east of York. The estate is approximately 8,800 acres (3,561 ha), comprising 6,100 acres of farmland, 2,100 acres of woodland and 600 acres of parkland.
