Why "Wolves of Lughasadh?"

This will be an event to celebrate the familiar traditions of old, and start a few new ones that will hopefully expand and enhance the Battle of the Dens experience for years to come. Where Lughnasadh is a festival that revels in both the joy of summer sun and the shift to crisp autumn nights, it is life and death juxtaposed - and the perfect backdrop for the end of our eventing season.

Lughnasadh (Scots-Gaelic) is also known as Lùnasa (Irish), Lammas (English) and Gŵyl Awst (Welsh), and is usually observed at the beginning of August.
