What is Beagling?

Beagling is a sport of tradition, dating back to 400 B.C. in the days of Ancient Greece. In due time it spread through Europe, eventually crossing the Atlantic with the English. Today there are hundreds of private and club sponsored beagle packs throughout the United States.

Beagling is a sport of chase and rarely of capture, as the wily rabbit leads an eager pack of hounds on a whirlwind tour through the countryside. As the pace is not especially fast, as onlookers (known as the Field) can follow along on foot, enjoying the beautiful countryside.

Who can participate in Beagling?

Beagling is a family friendly activity accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Participants range in age from infants in carriers to members over 100.
