That would be cool if I could, but insurance would be a b!tch.
Maybe I'll just go run around a XC course for a couple hours and pretend there's a bunch of hounds

Thank you Carleen :)

I love my boy! Nelson's previous owner, sent me a PM on FB telling me that she heard from the Fox Hunters. They told her some very nice things about Nelson and I, that made my heart sing - ending her PM with how pleased she is with who Nelson is now with. <3

Carleen, you have to find a local Fox Hunt group/organization and get involved! Once you start, you'll be hooked!

Lol, today on my hack with my friends, my little buddy whom is 12 who joined me on the hunt - the one in the pics with me, practiced and pretended to be a Whipper-In today, it was funny while he tried to "herd" my two dogs. Great times. Lol

Some hunts are more formal then others, so I am not sure how invites are done, but when I joined as a supporting member (mainly road whipping, allowed x amount of rides per year with a paid capping fee), it was a given that I would be back. A lot of the new members for our club are friends of hunt members who got invited out. MIE, how does your hunt go about inviting new members?

Here are some websites for those looking in the US for a hunt to join:

MFHA - Masters of Foxhounds Association (main page)
MFHA - Geographical Listing (geographic list of hunts)
This website does include Canadian hunts as well, since it is a North American site I believe.

Well I guess that Members invite friends to join in - but mostly it are the Non Members who call the Head Huntmen, or their friends who are members to come and ride.

Twice a year, the Hunt hosts an Open Hunt that are usually quite popular and they also host a Moonlight Ride.

I love this thread! I live near one of the oldest hunts in the states and they use fox scent, not a real animal ... How accomplished does one have to be to ride along? I ask because riding in a hunt this spring is my goal and I'm essentially a beginner (I rode years and years ago, but trust me, I'm a beginner again)! Thanks everyone!

Oh I would love to! Maybe once Flash is a bit older and better trained, lol. We'd be hopeless as of right now.

Are there hunts in BC? I've never heard of any... But I am definitely going to go search!

Thanks for sharing the pictures! You and Nelson always look great together.

I've always wanting to go fox hunting, and once I feel more confident riding, I'll definitely be figuring out a way to go. I checked out the links that were posted and there's alot of hunts in my area, which is encouraging!
