Autumn hunting starts with Hound Exercises with hounds at foot. The day starts and ends at the same place and lasts for a couple of hours. The Four Shires always have a second non-jumping field. These days are an excellent way to get horses, hounds and riders hunting fit. They are also perfect for newcomers who want to get a taste of the sport.

Hound Exercise cap: £20  No need to plait until the Opening Meet. Dress code: tweeds and ties.

All meets commence at 12 noon, unless indicated.  There are refreshments after all the hound exercises.
