THE Northumberland Sheep Dog Trials League held an open trial at Waite Farm, Haydon Bridge, on Saturday.
David Wood from Lancashire judged 25 dogs working strong Texel cross ewes over a very testing large hillside course set in two fields.
The five top dogs went on to compete in a very demanding double outrun final.
Results were as follows: 1. David Henderson (Hawick) with Ken 81/100 points, 2. Archie Tait (Barrasford) with Dale 80/100, 3. Bevis Jordan (Whitfield) with Grizz 79/100, 4. Bevis Jordan with Tex 79/100, 5. Bill Elliot (Yetholm) with Moss 78/100, 6. Tony Iley (Longframlington) with Scout 77/100.
The best novice was David Henderson.
Results of the Double Outrun: 1. David Henderson, 2. Bevis Jordan with Grizz, 3. Bevis Jordan with Tex, 4. Bill Elliot, 5. Archie Tait.
