The sport of Lure coursing is extremely exciting and tests not only the speed of the Borzoi, but the enthusiasm, agility, endurance, and the chase. Lure coursing attempts to mimic what the Borzoi was bred to do, chase. Each course uses an artificial lure which typically consists of three white plastic bags attached to a very long string. This lure is then pulled on a long course that follows a track through a field for the borzoi to follow.
After your borzoi is qualified, most progress to compete in stakes races and various field trials. Many of my Borzoi have gone on to win many titles and excel in this sport. If you would like to find more information about the sport please visit the American Sighthound Field Association (www.ASFA.org) for more information and upcoming trial dates
