Young handlers finals
The qualification for the Young Handler’s Scheme will now be run between 1 May when and ending on the following 30 April, thereby allowing young handlers qualifying at shows early in the year to compete in the finals in the same year at the Royal Highland Show.
For the 2017 finals, it will be possible for shows held between 1 January and 30 April to have two qualifiers, one for the 2016 show and one for the 2017 show.
It should also be made clear that there will be a very tight timescale at the end of the qualifying period to get entries into the Secretary to allow names to go forward to the Highland Show. People qualifying in the last week in April should contact the secretary immediately following qualification.
