Welcome to lure coursing with the
British Sighthound Field Association!
The British Sighthound Field Association holds it's lure coursing events in Kingsclere, near Newbury. All registered sighthound breeds are welcome.
You can learn more about the date and location of the next lure coursing event in the UK, as well as results from past lure coursing meetings from our Lure Coursing Calendar.
Lure Coursing stimulates the sighthound's natural instincts to chase a moving object. The "lure" (a bunch of plastic bags) is tied to a rope or line that is pulled around pullies by an electric motor especially designed for this purpose. The course pattern is irregular and somewhat similar to the way a hare might run in the open field.
NO LIVE GAME IS EVER USED.
Many of the breed clubs has fully endorsed our sport and has commended our efforts for promoting responsible dog ownership. Not only do we encourage good health and safe exercise for our dogs, but all our officials are always ready and happy to direct newcomers to the right source of information concerning any health or handling questions they might have.
If you have any questions, please contact a member of the British Sighthound Field Association.
Thank you for your interest and we are looking forward seeing you at our lure coursing meetings in 2015.
