A message from the Masters


Although, hopefully, the worst of the weather is over and the ground is now drying up we feel that our farmers and landowners deserve the respect of all of us during the Spring. It is their busiest time and they probably do not really want to see us.

HORSES: Please will everyone think before entering any fields when they are not with the Field Master or any of the Masters and it is up to the locals to make sure our visitors keep in touch and do not go where they shouldn’t if they get detached. Please remember that any mess made now will be there for the farmer to see all summer! It goes without saying that all gates must be shut – if in doubt shut it!

VEHICLES and BIKES (2-4 wheels): Please park sensibly and do not block the road or farm lanes and entrances. No-one is to leave the road unless you individually have the landowner’s permission and this is most important as the Police and the National Park will be watching this very closely. Please remember how noisy a gang of bikes are both to horses and the general public and try to minimise this by splitting up.
We get more complaints about the vehicles and bikes than anything else and it gives the hunt a very bad name.

We thank you for your support and look forward to a successful March and April.
