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.
New Arrivals At Kennels!
The Joint Masters, along with our Huntsman Stephen, are delighted to announce the arrival of a litter of puppies at kennels!
The wonderful Daisy whelped a litter of black and white hound pups at the end of May 2022. We’re confident they will be a fantastic addition to the pack; they should have the nose of a bloodhound (they are a quarter bloodhound, through Daisy) coupled with the drag hunting confidence and prowess of Ample, their sire.
Follow their progress here and on our social channels.
Puppy Show 26th June 2021
The Masters were delighted to welcome our puppy walkers to a lunch at kennels, followed by a traditional Puppy Show where Huntsman Stephen Hall and son Ben presented our puppies to judges Christopher Austin MFH (Kimblewick Hunt) and Oliver Thompson, Huntsman Old Berks Hunt.
