The Windy Hollow Hunt Clinic
Level 3+ for Riders
Are you curious about the age old sport of foxhunting? Riding to hounds is one of the most adventurous and social of the equestrian disciplines. The community is one you can join across the US and even the globe. Attend this clinic to learn the ins and outs of etiquette, tradition and how to get involved in the sport.
With MRC you can join 5 hunt clubs in the NY and NJ area. The season starts in July with introductory clinics and Roading (getting hounds fit on quiet rides), continuing into Autumn Hunting (informal hunt season) August-September and then enters Formal Season from October-March.
Our friends at the Windy Hollow Hunt will share their knowledge on field etiquette, tradition and rules of the sport. We will also ride out and practice all we learn.

Join us the night before at the Windy Hollow Kennels to meet the hounds and have a bbq with Huntsman Chris Burrowswood. Mingle with other MRC riders and get a head start on the clinic weekend while enjoying a night in the countryside. Chris is a wealth of knowledge, starting his hunting career at a young age in the UK and having hunted across the world. Talk to Chris, hear his stories and learn about his pack of English Hounds!
