The 2017/18 season officially starts on 1st May with many members of hunt staff moving on to pastures new and mastership changes taking place across the country. This is a great time to look forward to the many events that are due to take place during the spring and summer before hound exercise and autumn hunting start again.

Hunting Newcomers’ Week – 21-28 October 2017

The ever popular Hunting Newcomers’ Week returns in 2017 and will take place from 21-28 October.

The aim of the week is to introduce as many new faces to the hunting field as possible with the added incentive this year of a competition that encourages those who have enjoyed their day out with hounds to write about their encounter.

Hunts are invited to send us details of any newcomers’ meets or events being planned so we can advertise them along with details of others being held around the country.
