Traditional Hunting to Hounds
A Huge Thank you to Sam Cooper for putting together the "Day in the life of..." video below.
Clinics with Charlie Brister in 2015
Our next clinic is Sat Apr 11 at Berrima Pony Club Grounds. Entry includes cap fee for Hunt Intro Day at Sutton Forest on the 12th.
First Intro Day of 2015
Next Sunday will be the first day for Horses and Hounds to gather for 2015. Really looking forward to a bumper season. If you are not sure if you are suited to Hunting -these intro days in April are a great, low key opportunity to work out if horse and rider are suited! No need to jump as there is always a gate nearby!
Dress: These introductory days are 'Informal' days prior to Opening Meet on 3 May, so appropriate dress is as follows: Jodhpurs (preferably cream or tan), collared shirt and tie. Tweed or Navy coat if a cold day. Pony Club uniform is entirely appropriate. For those new to the sport do not feel obligated to buy new gear to try hunting - a great attitude is so much more important! Horses should be neatly groomed.
We erected about 20 fence panels at "Little Vale" on Sunday 8th March. This adds to the eight recently installed panels at "Cardross" near Goulburn and the new panels at Newbury Farm Sutton Forest. We expect these will make a huge difference to your hunting experience this season. Remember - there is always a gate close by!
