Breeders have carefully bred to preserve the breed's natural love of the chase. Because of this, they are fierce competitors on the lure coursing fields. Pharaoh Hounds frequently are Best in Field winners and love nothing more than the opportunity to run.
There are a number of lure coursing trials held around the country throughout the year. These events are sponsored by both the American Kennel Club (AKC) and the American Sighthound Field Association (ASFA).
