Impact Dog Crate Co. is contributing one of their great collapsible crates to each day winner and to the Gold Medalist. Thank you Impact!

Purina ProPlan is contributing one bag of ProPlan dog food to each daily winner and to the Gold Medalist. Thank you Purina ProPlan!

Thank you to our official livestock and canine equipment provider - providing set-out pens, exhaust pens and more! There wouldn't be a sheepdog trial without Powder River's contribution!

Qualifying for the Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship

With new dates for the Soldier Hollow Classic, the qualifying trials will be modified for this year as noted here.  Because some trials will have occurred twice since the 2022 Soldier Hollow Classic, priority will be given to their 2023 winners and 2022 winners in those trials.

  • The Soldier Hollow Gold Medalist from the prior two years (2021 and 2022)
