IMPORTANT NOTICE: By order of Natural England, no practice trails are to be run on Bowness Moss (Cardurnock) or Whadam Moss (Grassings) without permission from Andy Horn or Brian Shaw (BHTA).

This is a clause requested by Natural England, and anybody who trials without permission is putting Hound Trailing at risk in that area.

 

The Forestry Commission has asked that no hounds should be run at Cogra Moss for the time being, as heavy machinery is being used in forestry work.

 

82 pups have now been registered.
