Here is the entry form for this year's SDT.
Our judge this year is Barbara Armata
She will also be judging Long Shot Farm SDT in Church Hill MD the following weekend (Sept 23-25)
This year Pipedream Farm and Long Shot Farm are offering a Maryland Challenge Award, a prize crook, to the team with the highest combined score from both trials. Pipedream Farm SDT is on a hill while Long Shot is flat; both run on farm flocks of hair sheep.
Trial Field description:
Approximately 250-300 yard outrun with a 125' elevation gain
Small dogleg in the fetch to avoid a rocky outcropping
There is a 10'-15' steep slope that runs across the field near the top of the fetch
The cross drive has difficult terrain changes which include crossing this steep slope
