A very new type of sheepdog trial took place in South Lakes in October. A trial specially for new handlers. That includes people who have not yet got to the stage where they can complete a full course at a trial, those who have not yet plucked up the courage to enter a trial and those who have participated in the New Handler class at a trial.

It was a huge success and many thanks to Chris and Alan Bradley for going to the effort of putting it on. Let's hope that more seasoned trialists will do the same.

Class 1 Working a dog at hand
        (only for very first time competitors)

Very pleased to say that Handsome Lad and myself came 3rd in this category. I would like to have posted a picture of him working - but it was torrential rain when we competed!
