Q- I have not been before and I want to come hunting?
A- Please contact the hunt secretary who will endeavour to help you with any queries you have. These may include times, dates and locations.
Q- Is it cruel?
A- Due to the 2005 Hunting ban the Holderness hunt no longer hunts foxes. Instead an artificial trial comprised of fox wee is used which is 100% legal. The hounds gladly follow this scent providing a good day for followers on horseback or foot. This means no foxes are killed or even hunted as this would be illegal. No cruelty is exerted on anyone or anything!
Q- What if I don't have my own horse?
A- You can hire horses for a day’s hunting. These horses are called hirelings. For more information please contact the hunt secretary.
Q- What if I have my own horse but I have never been before?
A- Autumn hunting is a great way to introduce a young or inexperienced horse gradually to hunting. Please contact the hunt secretary for more information.
Q- What do I do on a hunting day?
A- Please see the ‘Etiquette’ page.
Q- How much does it cost to come hunting?
A- Please contact the hunt secretary.
Q- What do I have to wear?
A- Please see ‘Attire' page.
