Trompes de Chasse Regional Selections

On Saturday the Regional Selections for the Trompes de Chasse troupes was held in Preuilly. We went to the event to see some of the action and have lunch.

The 'National Union for the Use of Red Dogs' stand. This organisation trains small hunting dog breeds such as the chien de rouge and dachshunds (teckels) to track wounded animals for recovery or humane dispatch.
