How to get involved

Going to a Boxing Day Hunt Meet may be an annual family ritual for some, however if you haven’t been to a Boxing Day meet before and want to know how to attend – either on foot or on horse – the best way is to contact the secretary of your local pack.

Find details on the mounted foxhound packs or Harriers and Beagle packs websites.

The hunt secretary will be able to advise you where the meet is, where you can park and how much it will cost. Although the rates vary between packs, there are often special rates available for newcomers or those under-25.

Many hunts have their own websites too, so it can be useful to refer to those for additional information regarding what to wear and general hunting etiquette.
