A sport where dogs chase a simulated rabbit (usually a piece of shopping bag) that is pulled around a course with pulleys. Dogs are timed from their release until they catch the rabbit, best time wins.

Coursing is a very period event, being the original "sport of kings," as only nobility were allowed to own greyhounds (who are well-bred for such a sport).
