Sunday 24 October, Inanda Country Base
Time: 8.30 for 8.45am
Place: Inanda Country Base, in the Bowl.

Cost: R250 (R100 under 16yrs)

This is the last "Gentle Introduction to Drag Hunting" event before the beginning of the 2021/22 season. This is a special mounted hound exercise designed to introduce riders and their horses, who have not hunted before, to the fun of hunting. Come and introduce your new or young horse to the hounds and to being part of a field of horses. This will be a perfect opportunity to introduce you and/or your horse to the great sport of drag-hunting. Booking is essential as we can only accommodate a limited amount of riders.

We will assemble on the Bowl on the front of the Clubhouse at 8.30am for 8.45am. Experienced members of the Rand Hunt will be there to meet you. Our field master will collect your payment receipt and talk you through guidelines for safe riding in a group of horses. At 9.00am she will take the field to the kennels to meet the hounds as well as our hunt servants - the huntsman and whippers-in.

The hunt servants will then set off with the hounds and the field master will take the field at a trot on a route through Inanda Country Base, planned to include small inviting non-compulsory jumps. This will give everyone the opportunity to experience moving and jumping in a group at a slow and controlled pace. The field master and riders will occasionally meet up with the hounds and hunt servants in order to give your horse the opportunity to watch hounds moving, close by. When hounds return to kennels, if you are "up to it", you will have the opportunity to jump some lines of non-compulsory hunt jumps (between 600 and 800mm high) as a group, behind the field master, as you would do when out drag hunting as a rider in the field.

If you have always wanted to come drag hunting but have been too nervous to try it or if you have a young horse that needs to be introduced to the concept of moving with a group of horses, this is perfect for you.
