Major Herding Events
Every year the USBCHA hosts two major events, the National Sheep Dog Finals and the National Cattledog Finals. Handlers in each division (Sheep and Cattle) compete in sanctioned trials to earn a chance to run for the title of National Champion in that division.
World Sheep Dog Trial
The World Sheep Dog Trial is held once every three years. Handlers from countries around the world come together to compete for the title of World Champion. The next World Trial will be held September 11 – 15, 2011 on the picturesque Lowther Estates in Cumbria, England.
