The Rombout Hunt
Friday, October 22nd
Join us on a thrilling ride with hounds, hunt members, masters and the stunning countryside. Hunts can last anywhere from 2 to 3 hours so you must be prepared for an unexpected day and ride! You can go from a complete standstill to a gallop across fields as the chase ensues.
A commonly asked question is if we are actually hunting and the truth is it's more of a fox chase. Foxhunting began in the 15th century as a means to preserve farmland and crops and today still aims to preserve open space and to protect the open land we all so enjoy riding on and our horses and other animals need for grazing. Come along for yourself and see what it's all about.
