Young handlers take to the world stage

For the first time at a World Trial, the 2017 event will host a young handlers’ competition. 


The organisation of the contest is in the early stages, but the idea is to invite one young handler from all countries with one to seven representatives, and two handlers from all other nations. All countries will be able to include a reserve. 

The competition will be held on day three and four of the event, with prizes to be announced. The winner will be crowned ISDS Young Handler World Trial Champion.
