Simulated Coursing

Lurchers had the reputation of being poachers' dogs and "untrained killers” but have now become recognised as respected members of the field sports fraternity. They are often used for pest control, mostly on rabbits and are a purpose-bred crossbreed. Very biddable and making excellent pets they quite happy to live alongside other animals in the family home, providing they have been properly trained. This very popular event is great fun to watch.
Anyone can enter their Lurcher/Longdog for the Simulated Coursing; in fact any breed is welcome. Entry is at the Main Ring near the Control Bus from 9.10am
