ANNUAL FOXHUNTING SCHOOL
FOR HORSE AND RIDER
SPONSORED BY THE WICOMICO HUNT
SEPTEMBER 2018


The sport of mounted foxhunting involves disciplined riding with hounds as they chase a fox across the countryside.  It is very exciting.  No matter what your age, if you enjoy eventing, hunter pace events or trail riding, consider this school.  It is a comfortable and fun way to learn the basics of this fascinating sport.  The school involves cross-country riding over sometimes challenging terrain at different speeds.  Jumping is not required.  The school also teaches the “strategy” of foxhunting, the organization and etiquette of the hunt, and the importance of safety.  Both horse and rider will have a chance to be with the hounds.  The school builds up to actual autumn hunting with the Wicomico Hunt.  English or western riders may participate.
