Mock Hunt Taster Days

WDHC hold Taster Days throughout the autumn and winter, to enable you to get to know what mock hunts are all about.

Whether you have been on our mock hunts previously and felt a bit lost about what was/is expected – from dress code to manners on the day – or you have never been before, and would appreciate a stepping stone in a controlled environment, this clinic will help answer all your questions.

On the day there will be two sessions starting at 10.15am and 12noon. Each session will have a maximum of 6 to 8 riders and will be lead by one of our masters and accompanied by an assistant acting as a hound for the clinic. Each session will be approximately 1.5 hours, covering a defined line around Warren Barn Farm.

Initially your Master and assistant will be discussing and running through with your group the various facets of hunting, including dress code. You will then set off a at a slow pace with various stops throughout to discuss each issue that you will come across i.e., staying behind Master and what to do if you can't, jumping obstacles (all jumps are optional), understanding the hunt terminology etc.

Any and all questions will be answered by your Master on the day; don't be shy that's what they're there for!

Dress code for the clinic is casual for both horse and rider – please ensure you turn out in all relevant safety wear (hat, vest, boots etc) as you would for any jumping class or event. Please note that any jumping is optional

This is a unique opportunity to learn about hunting and should not be missed. The sessions will stand you in good stead for the Beginners Mock Hunts as well as the other Mock Hunts we run during the season.

We look forward to seeing you at the session and advise that you book early as there are only a limited number of spaces.
