Welcome to the Leatherstocking Sheep Dog Trials!August 19, 20, 21, 2016
The Leatherstocking Sheepdog Trial is sanctioned by both the North East Border Collie Association (NEBCA) and the United States Border Collie Handler's Association, Inc. (USBCHA).
The Sheepdog Trial is a competitive dog sport in which a dog moves sheep around a field, through gates, and into enclosures as directed by their handler.
The workmanship between dog and handler, and the ever unpredictable sheep, make for a fascinating sport to watch.
The 2016 21st Annual Leatherstocking Sheepdog Trial
held on the Robert F. Clark field off Beaver Meadow Road.
Starts time is around 8:00 AM and goes until the last dog runs (usually around 5:00 PM)
