1. Foxhunting
Information on mounted foxhunting (aka riding to hounds), from Matt Simpson's personal perspective.
Fox Hunting
No, foxhunting isn't just an obsolete British tradition, although the sport did originate in Great Britain. But when the colonists came over here to escape the tyrannies of Bad King George, foxhunting was one of the old country traditions they just couldn't do without. It's been going strong on this side of the pond since 1650, when Colonel Robert Brooke brought hounds to Maryland from England. In fact, George Washington (father of our country, the guy on the dollar bill) was an avid foxhunter after he outgrew cutting down cherry trees. It's sort of ironic to think of him wearing a scarlet coat while his soldiers referred to the enemy soldiers as "Redcoats." Speaking of those scarlet coats, did you ever wonder why some people call them pink (or Pinque)? Jim Reeds did, and did some exhaustive research on the subject. And, as long as we're on the historical subject, check out these essays on foxhunting, written by Anthony Trollope and presented on the web by Dean Rudy. And three centuries later, while more trivial pastimes like hula hoops have come and gone, foxhunting is still going strong on both sides of the Atlantic. According to the foxhunting exhibit at the International Museum of the Horse , there are over 150 active hunts in North America, and other estimates put that number over 200. And of course, the British have an even more active

Removed all of the stuff that needed updating and maintenance. I don't hunt anymore, but this site may be useful to some folks, so I'll leave the permanent stuff up as a service to humanity.
PROPER ATTIRE CARTOONS Like all complex, anachronistic, and worthwhile activities, foxhunting has a lexicon all its own.
The definitions are organized into three main pages which are accessed via the main Glossary page. Some terms are illustrated with click-to-see photos. What to wear, what to wear... and when... and why. Maybe your hunt doesn't do it quite this way, but this page should give you a general idea of what "proper" means for foxhunting attire and appointments.
Perhaps I'll also get around to illustrating some of this stuff sometime. Enjoy a few dozen of the scores of foxhunting cartoons that could be found in "Punch" magazine since the mid 19thC. Some things just don't seem to change. LINKS PHOTOGRAPHS COMMANDMENTS Here's a partial list of websites for hunt clubs, foxhunting-related organizations, and sources of information.

Electronic Equestrian Connections
What do horses and computers have in common? Many people would probably say "Not much!" But many people seem to be addicted to both. When I first learned about the Internet in 1988, way back when it was primarily used for email and file transfer between academic and research institutions, there were already thousands of horse lovers online, using the net to find and converse with others who shared their interests; and the Electronic Equestrian community has grown tremendously since then. This is a list of a few of my favorites of the many equestrian hangouts in the virtual world.
Equine-L is an email discussion list hosted at Penn State University. If you're unfamiliar with mailing lists like this, it's a way to exchange e-mail with a large group of people sharing some common interest (in this case, horses). E-mail sent to a single address (the list address) is forwarded by the list server computer to all the list subscribers. To subscribe: send an e-mail message to the server at

Hounded to Death It's not only foxes who are hurt and killed in bloodsports. Horses and dogs also die in the name of a pastime which remains legal in Britain.
Hounded to Death
It's not only foxes who are hurt and killed in bloodsports. Horses and dogs also die in the name of a pastime which remains legal in Britain.
We'd have seen Ms. Fox hiding in the nearest hedge when she heard the hooves, and the hunters cheering the hounds on to catch her. The fox darted away, and now she's getting more out of breath every minute. Now the push is on for the horses to clear high hurdles at breakneck speed to reach the fox. "We know of many of these horses who fell and got injured, "said Ben Stewart, research officer for the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS). " The horses were then destroyed." The fast ride thrills foxhunters: "You could probably get 50 reasons from people for why they hunt, " said Patrick Martin of Bicester Kennels, who’s led foxhunts for at least seven years. "The wind in their hair. The thrill of the chase. The enjoyment of hearing the hounds. The freedom. And the countryside." One hound is shrieking in pain because he jumped onto a barbed-wire fence and can't get off. "Just about every day a hunt goes out, one of its dogs will cut his pads or tail badly on barbed wire," said Paul Gammon, press officer for the Hunt Saboteurs Association (HAS), which has witnessed and tried to save foxes' lives at tens of thousands of hunts since 1962. "When hounds chase foxes, they ignore everything else." Sometimes hounds get bloodied from brambles or broken glass. About once a season, one hound in each hunt pack will fall to his death chasing a fox to the edge of a 100-foot quarry, Gammon reported. "Hundreds of hounds have run into trains an cars and been killed," added Stewart. One train crushed eleven hounds at once.

The Derrydale Press was the preeminent publisher of outdoor books in North America in the first half of the 20th century. Established in 1927 in New York City by Eugene V. Connett, III, Derrydale’s original 169 titles are the most collectible sporting books in today’s rare book market. Original Derrydales, now selling for hundreds and thousands of dollars each, are so highly sought after because Connett was a genius at designing and manufacturing spectacularly beautiful books printed on imported rag paper and bound in the finest cloth and leather. We are in the process of reviving Derrydale in order to return it to its glory days. High-quality books in fields such as hunting, fishing, horse sports, hiking, sporting art, and the outdoors in general are being sold in limited editions and in more accessible cloth and paper editions to experts and enthusiasts new to these fields alike. The Derrydale Press Foxhunters’ Library alone has already published twelve new books. Derrydale is also in the process of reviving its fine printmaking business with a limited edition hand colored stone lithograph of a brook trout by Connecticut artist James Prosek.

Fox Hunting Miami Valley Hunt Introductory Guide For Foxhunters Part I - Organization in the Field A. THE MASTER, or MFH, is in overall command of the hunt and his word is final in the field and in the kennels. He decides when and where hounds will meet, what coverts are to be drawn, and when hounds will go home. He is responsible for hounds showing the best possible sport under existing conditions; and he is responsible for the hounds, the staff, and the Field neither damaging nor annoying the landowners who make the sport possible. He is the boss, and during his term of office there is no higher appeal. In many hunts the duties of the Master are divided between two Joint Masters. B. THE HUNTSMAN controls the hounds, indicating to them by signals where he wishes them to draw for a fox, and he is responsible for a fox being well hunted when found. He attempts to be sure that hounds work together as a pack by encouraging the tail hounds and steadying the lead hounds, and in case of a check he must be prepared to assist hounds to recover the line by use of a cast if necessary. His technical decisions must be quickly made, and staff and Field must abide by them or utter chaos will ensue.

Frequently Asked Questions
Top How long have people been hunting foxes in Britain?
For thousands of years foxes have been hunted for their fur and also, surprisingly, for food. In the middle ages, foxes were dug out or bolted from their dens, or driven out of woods, and then either coursed with long-legged dogs or caught in nets. The aim was not sport but to reduce fox numbers. Originally hare and deer were the favoured quarry of sport hunters, but from about 1660 (after the restoration of Charles II) specialised packs of hounds were bred to hunt foxes. However, this was a very slow sport: the hounds met at dawn and slowly followed the scent trail of the fox back to where it lay up. The hunting day was relatively short, and finished once the hounds could no longer follow the foxes' overnight scent trails.
Top How, where and when did foxhunting begin?
