Open Field Coursing


This winter (2002/2003), we were very lucky to have once more the opportunity to test some of our dogs in the real thing: Open Field Coursing in England (SGHC)

In particular our Zanji Irabi Hadi el Basher did very well: She won the

 "Victor Henderson Trophy"

 which is awarded for the highest number of individual courses won during the whole season. Here is how it went:

The Michael Lyne Trophy

Wallaby's Sahr As-Saga and Zanji Irabi H. e. B. in slips for the final.

Zanji won the Trophy, while runner-up Saga received a Michael Lyne painting.

Chubasco Boomerang was beaten in the semi-final by Saga, but won Course of the Day.
