Introduction To Fox Hunting
Join us for a weekend of trail riding and fox hunting information. Morning ride to get acquainted and discuss fox hunting issues on horseback. Ride the trails we hunt and see the hunt jumps and coops. Lunch and free time. Late afternoon or evening ride with some jumping on the trails, discuss hunt traditions, attire and etiquette. Discuss the different fields of first field and hilltoppers. Dinner and photo or film discussion on fox hunting, perhaps listen to horn blowing on tape.
Second day to ride more hunt country and jump coops for those that are preparing to go first field. Visit the Bull Run Kennels. In July we walk out the puppies with the pack and in August horses start going out with the young hounds.
Do come and join us for a week-end of learning about foxhunting and hounds in Virginia.
