Sixty handlers and their cattle dogs had qualified for a chance to win this remarkable trophy. The cattle dogs worked hard, with tough cattle and hot weather but they had a great time.
The United States Border Collie Handlers Association (USBCHA) held their first Cattle Dogs trial at Montgomery, Alabama with sponsorship from the American Border Collie Association (ABCA) and Krasco.
Qualifiers from many parts of the US came to compete at this new event. This 2 hour video looks at the qualifying and semi finals and then gives a more in depth look at the final day of competition.
This championship trial is held under the jurisdiction of the United States Border Collie Handler’s Association, (the USBCHA) North America’s main working Border Collie association.
4 days of trialing, meetings and socials led us through the different days of the competition.
With a couple of cameras running we have put together a 4 hour, 2 DVD set, of these 4 days of Border Collie competitions and some of the other interesting happenings that surround this event.
This video looks at the qualifying trials for both the Nursery trial and also the Open qualifying competition, the daily scores and highlights and then through to the Championship classes for both the 2007 Cattledog Nursery competition and also the double lift Open competition with over 70 Border Collies, from across North America, making up the show.
The USBCHA Cattledog Finals were sponsored by both the American Border Collie Association, the main Border Collie registry in North America and also by the U.S. Border Collie Handlers Association.
