There’s someting going on all year round, take a look and use the filters to see what’s going on in your area.

The biggest trials in the UK and Ireland are the ISDS Nationals and International Trials, held every year. There is also the ISDS World Trial, held every three years.

All trials make a great day out in the countryside, where you get to experience the incredible ability of the Border Collie and the skill of being a shepherd!
