Traditional English Hunting to Hounds with an Australian Backdrop
Hunting to hounds began in Australia in 1811, and since it's introduction The Sydney Hunt Club has hunted periodically in the Sydney and Southern Highlands areas. Hunting is a great non competitive day for riders as well as non-riders, and is also a great training ground for eventers wanting to improve fitness and give horses exposure to different environments.
The Sydney Hunt Club currently has 12 couple (24 hounds) kennelled and worked by The Huntsman, Donnchadh Brown. Donnchadh is a keen and dedicated rider from Ireland who has hunted with a variety of clubs throughout Ireland, the UK, America and is now in his third season as Huntsman at the Sydney Hunt Club.
The Club is proud to be a member of Equestrian Australia and actively promotes rider & horse safety.
