Forthcoming Working Events Diary
Dear members, below is a list of events and training dates proposed for 2022 put together by the Field Trial Sub-committee. We may add more dates in the coming months, please check back regularly.
Schedules for the Working Tests will be published when the details are formalised. We are publicising the NEFRA and Southern Flatcoat events for two reasons, one so that we try to avoid date clashes and secondly and most importantly, so that we publicise as much information for owners wishing to train their flatcoat for working.
