Thank you...

Our 2019 International Sheep Dog Trials which were held at Shandford, Brechin were another year of great success. The dedication and hard work of the Local Committee and Committee Members was outstanding, and we are so grateful too of the support that so many additional friends, family and volunteers provided to make this trial so successful. We really do appreciate the precious time that you give up.

We can not thank the Mather family enough for allowing us to host the 2019 International on their land, such a beautiful location for an International, and one that provided a challenging trial. In addition we thank them for the loan of the sheep.

A huge thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors, without their support the trial just wouldn't take place.

Thank you also to all of the trade and craft stands that joined us, we hope that they enjoyed being at the trial as much as we enjoyed having them there. Some of them certainly did have to battle with the weather to keep their stands in place, it wasn't easy at times.

Thank you to all the ISDS staff for the behind the scenes preparation and support of the trial.

Thank you and congratulations to all the competitors and their dogs, we were provided with fantastic, thrilling entertainment throughout the trial. 

Finally, thank you to everybody that attended and supported the trial, we hope that you had a wonderful time, and we look forward to seeing you all in Wales in 2020!
