Link to Valley Ford Challenge Trial Entry

Steve and Jeannie Moody will host a RESDA Sheep Dog Trial followed by a Mountain States Stock Dog Association style Cattle Dog Trial. The original date of 5/18/2019 has been postponed due to weather. Check back for a new date in June.

14 Trial Dates Scheduled for 2019

A variety of settings and sheep flocks tests the mettle of both dog and handler. The dog and handler team scoring the highest number of cumulative points though the year is awarded the annual RESDA High Points Championship.
PDF Schedule and Course Description
In 1947, less than two years after World War II ended, a group of Mendocino County sheep ranchers decided friendly competition was the best way to determine who had the best working sheep dog. The ranchers designed a unique course that tested the variety of skills needed on a working sheep ranch and founded RESDA. RESDA Sheep Dog Trials using our unique course have been run each year since then. These trials demonstrate the teamwork required to successfully run a livestock operation.
