The New Forest is ideal country in which to begin hunting on a horse as there is no jumping required, and, as there is free public access to the forest, you can take your own line at your own speed as your knowledge and experience allows. Anyone competent at walk, trot and canter, with a reasonably sensible horse will easily cope with a days hunting in the New Forest. The many wide open heathland areas also allow a great opportunity to watch the skill of hounds and huntsman at work.

The New Forest Hounds offer an equine collection and disposal service from your home or on delivery to the kennels by appointment. Sympathetic professional service. Telephone (023) 80282585 or 07778 966818
