Women are making their presence felt at the National Sheep Dog Trials underway at Hall Showground, 25 minutes west of the Canberra CBD.President of the Trials Association, Charlie Cover says 41% of entries this year came from female handlers.
“Its a record for us and I think it might also be a world record,” Charlie says.
“Women’s sport, in general, has absolutely exploded this year – AFL, soccer; and we are now apart of that.
“Men and women compete on an equal playing field, physical strength has nothing to do with it,” he says.
