About the listing
Starting out as two farmers competing to see who had the better dog, sheepdog trialing has grown to include competitors from all backgrounds, rural and suburbia, competing in nearly 30 events across Victoria alone.
The Koroit Sheepdog Trial committee have for a number of years run one of Victoria’s premier sheepdog trialing events. This year it has been expanded to include the Australian Sheepdog Championships.
Competitors from all over Australia will converge on Victoria Park, Koroit to test the combined skill of handler and dog,
The handler and dog must control and guide three sheep through various obstacles, culminating in “penning” the sheep, all under the watchful eye of the judge and within the 15 minute time limit.

Come see some of the country’s best ply their craft, while at the same time enjoy a past time that has been an active part of rural life in Victoria for over 90 years.
