For those of you who have been involved with stockdog trials, you know what I'm talking about when I tell you that one of North America's largest, longest-running, and most prestigious stockdog trials will be held in less than two months at beautiful Masterson Station Park in Lexington KY, in the heart of the Bluegrass.
The Bluegrass Classic SDT draws top handler/dog teams from all over North America (and sometimes even from across the pond) to compete in the USBCHA-sanctioned two two-day Open trials and four Nursery trials, as well as in the two classes each of Ranch, Pro-Novice, and Novice. The trial is crowned with the running of the top 20 combined score Open teams in a Double-lift, International-shed Finals on Sunday.
The Bluegrass is truly an "open" trial - competitors range from National Finals, Canadian Finals, Bluegrass Classic, Soldier Hollow, Meeker, Grass Creek, and other major trial winners running in Open, Nursery, and intermediate classes, to Novice handlers running their first dog.
Admission is free, concessions and vendors are on-site, the park is family- and dog-friendly (a large dog park is adjacent), and the Kentucky Wool and Fiber Festival is held concurrently on May 16-17 in the park for those who enjoy the fiber arts.
You can support the Bluegrass whether or not you can attend. An ad in our program is a great way to thank a mentor, recognize or memorialize a dog or handler, promote your product, or simply show your support for these amazing working dogs. Go to our website http://www.bluegrass...csdt.com/5.html to download the ad/sponsorship form.
A trial of this quality and magnitude can't exist without the hard work and the support of many people. You can volunteer to help at this page http://www.bluegrass...csdt.com/9.html and be an essential part of a legendary trial.
Thank you for your support!
