Parade of Horses
The "Parade of Horses" will showcase different breeds and/or colors of horses. Each horse and rider enter the arena one at a time and the announcer will read a brief description of the horse its heritage and its uses. After all horses have been shown, all will re-enter the arena together and stand at the rail so that people may talk to the rider and pet the horse.
There will be a demonstration of Lure Coursing given by Laura Cormier. Lure coursing is a humane sport which recreates 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.
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.
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
