In 2002, Vic Morris, was the English National Sheepdog trials winner with Glen, a pup from the only litter bred from Dot, our BCR principal sheepdog who was herself bred by John Templeton. Dot had her pups well before coming into BCR care, but it is good to know they take after her!

Sophie Holt with Sid

Edited condensed version of Sophie Holt running her uncles Border Collie, Sid, at the English National Sheepdog Trials on 16th August 2007.

Sophie, aged 15, is already an accomplished trailist with many wins and was the youngest competitor at the 2007 event. When she came over to the BCR stall we took the opportunity to interview her.  She has been training and working sheepdogs for many years and is enthusiastic about attracting other young people to the sport.

She was the last competitor to run at the trials and by the time she took the field it was raining. Apologies to everyone for the rain on the lens and the poor sound quality.

Jim Cropper - Final runoff

Edited condensed version of Jim Cropper running his Border Collie in the runoff at the English National Sheepdog Trials on 16th August 2007.

The trial was held over three days. On each day the highest scoring handler and dog go into the runoff at the end of the trial to decide the overall winner and English National Champion. Jim was the highest scorer on his day and was selected to go third in the runoff. This means this run is the very last of the trial and is followed by the presentation.

The top three scorers and the next twelve highest ranked are guaranteed a place in the English team to represent England in the Internationals. The runoff's are shorter than the qualifying runs with a reduced course. At the point he started Jim knew he was in the top three and in the team.

English National Sheepdog Trials 2007

Winners and award presentation

The winners over the three days - and the rest of the runners qualifying for a place in the English team to represent their country at the International Sheepdog trials - are announced and presented with their 'Caps' and awards at the end of the 2007 English National Sheepdog Trials.

The three days of the Trial were plagued by wind but rain, at least, held off until the last moment and only dampened the last few runs of the event. However by the time of the presentation the rain had settled.
Due to the large number of spectators, press and film crew, there was no marquee large enough to hold the awards presentation so it was a damp, open air event.
Perhaps quite fitting as the lifestyle of farmer and shepherd does not stop because of a bit of rain and wind.


This has been an excellent three days of trialing and Border Collie Rescue was pleased to be invited to have a stall and be present. The sheep were worse than the weather and presented problems to all the handlers and dogs. And what wonderful dogs - Border Collies everywhere you looked in all shapes sizes and markings. Good natured dogs watching the proceedings with the same enthusiasm as their handlers, although perhaps with a less critical attitude!
