The White River

The people who come to the Meeker Classic Sheepdog Trials are like family. They are loyal to not only the sheepdogs but to the community that hosts the Trials every year.  Meeker is still planning to welcome everyone with open arms, even though the Trials have been postponed until September, 2021.

Here is a quick list of other things to do in Meeker, Colorado…
