In conjunction with the Central Committee of Fell Packs and by kind permission of the Lowther Estate, the Lowther Show will once again play host to the ever-popular Lowther Hound Show.
The Lowther Hound Show is one of the Lowther Show’s headline attractions across the weekend. It offers a fantastic opportunity for various member hunts to get together, speak with sponsors and visitors within the dedicated marquee and find out everything there is to know about the types of hounds competing in this year’s show.
With some of the finest judges, including those from the Foxhounds and the Harehounds, the 2016 Lowther Hound Show is a must-see event.
Don’t forget to check out the Lowther Hunt Singing Competition too, which takes place across the weekend. Organised by Country Voices, the Lowther Hunt singers will be situated in the Hunting Marquee following the Foxhound Show and the Parade of Hounds.
New for 2016, the Lowther Hound Show invites all to get involved and take part in the judging, with an Amateur Judging Competition involving the fell packs taking place on the Sunday of the show. After Sunday’s parade, the public will get to judge on paper their choice of 1st 2nd & 3rd placing.
