From September 4-7 at the Soldier Hollow Resort in Midway, the Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship will be happening! It is a 4-day competition and is the world’s foremost annual sheepdog championship.

Soldier Hollow Classic

These sheep are very wary of anything with four legs and a tail.  One wrong move and they’re likely to turn and fight or scatter and head for the scrub oak at the top of the hill (there are no fences to keep them in).  But these Border Collies are the world’s best sheep dogs and it’s up to them to reassure the sheep that all will be well if they just fall into line and do what is needed. This all happens while listening to detailed instruction, via whistles and calls from their handler up to 400 yards away down the mountainside.  The winner is the dog who gets the job done and who does it well, taking care of his sheep with no unnecessary stress and no abuse.

  • Local food vendors

  • Police K-9 Demonstrations
  • Splash Dogs
  • Other Kid-Friendly Activities
