This guide is aimed at helping newcomers to hunting who are planning their first day out, but we hope it will also serve as a useful reminder for more experienced hunt followers.
A day’s hunting involves considerable planning, time and effort on the part of the Master and Huntsman, Field Masters, and other Hunt officials, and the basic rules of hunting are there to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and safe day. Appropriate behaviour, dress code and well turned out horses show courtesy and appreciation to farmers and landowners who allow us to ride over their ground.
We hope this guide will help you to feel more at home and don’t worry if you can’t remember it all at once. If in doubt: don’t be afraid to ask!
