Horse And Hound Events
There will be a demonstration of Lure
Coursing given by Laura Cormier. Lure
coursing is a humane sport which re-
creates the chase of the hare by the
pursuing hound. The "bunny" consists of
strips of white plastic attached to a
continuous loop line that runs through a
series of pulleys to simulate the zigzag
path of a rabbit on the run.
After the demo, all dogs that attend the festival
are invited to try the course.
Supervised activities for children simulating rodeo games and quiet games as well throughout the day. Supervision by the staff and volunteers of Brook Hill Farm Rehabilitation and Rescue and sponsored by Bank of the James.
This event uses the Jack Russell
Terrier's highly developed prey drive
to swim through water in pursuit
of an artificial lure.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes are invited
to swim across the pond in pursuit of an
artificial lure. There will be three divisions
of competition: small, medium, and large
dogs. The winner in each division will
receive a trophy.
