At The Kennels

Stephen Hall is our Huntsman and is responsible for the day to day running of the kennels. During the Drag Hunting season (October - March) our hounds can be see every week at our Drag Hunt Meets. During the Summer months, our hounds can be see parading at country shows. In the Autumn, we organise Hound Exercise - either on foot, bikes or mounted. This is a great way to get to know our friendly hounds and the mounted hound exercise is perfect for introducing new horses to Drag Hunting before the season starts. Details of any hound activities will be posted on the Forthcoming Events page.
