We will be hosting a dog competition brought to you by the Sunshine State Rhodesian Ridgeback Club and it is open to all breeds of sight hounds. More specifically, this event is called “Lure Coursing” where the dogs chase a mechanical rabbit. Lure Coursing is one of the most popular sports enjoyed by Ridgeback and other sight hound enthusiasts. There are two separate groups in which sight hounds can compete – American Sighthound Fanciers Association (ASFA) and AKC. The premise of the sport is the same, including the way the dogs are judged, the awards and point systems are slightly different.

To be held in the Willow area at 9:00 am.
