        Introduction to Foxchasing Clinic

        Saturday, August 25th 2018

        Details:

        Join us for a Fox Chasing Clinic August 25, 2018

        This is a mini clinic with mounted and unmounted sessions to inform the experienced as well as the inexperienced rider about the sport of foxchasing and the etiquette and situations that arise in the hunt field.

        Riders will be split into two groups. There will be a First Field, which will consist of riders who are cantering and jumping under control. The jumps will not exceed 3’3”. The non-jumping group, the Second Field, will be for riders who are trotting and cantering under control. You may also participate as a Foot Follower, for those who come without horses and wish to experience the fun from a different perspective.

        The clinic begins at 7:30am with registration. Riders are requested to be ready with their mounts at 8:00 for an introduction to the events. The mounted clinic will ride out at approximately 8:15. Casual attire, hard hat with harness, and riding boots are required.

        The Potomac Hunt will provide brunch following the mounted activities. During this time there is a discussion of the morning’s hunt with stories and recollections by hunt members on their experiences in the field! A demonstration of hunt attire will be provided, and there will be time for questions.

        Note: Participants are also invited to join us in a special opportunity to walk out on foot (no horses) with our champion hounds and our huntsman on Friday evening at 6:30 PM for Happy Hour with the Hounds. Come and learn even more about foxchasing!
