HUNT HIRELINGS TO HUNT WITH CAPE HUNT CLUB (May to Sept)
Drag Hunting is an exhilarating, non-competitive, cross-country, equestrian sport in which riders follow foxhounds that are trained to follow a laid trail of scent.
The exciting course is ridden at a canter or a gallop and usually includes numerous (optional) jumps and some natural hazards such as river crossings.
We “Hunt’ every Sunday from the end of May to the end of September.
These hunts take place all over the Western Cape, on private farms and wine estates. We are very privileged to have access to such fantastic venues!
Based on the English sport of ‘Fox-hunting’, drag hunting has the same old traditions and strict dress codes. However, we do not hunt foxes. Instead the hounds are trained to follow a scent, which is laid down by a lead rider.
Our horses are all experienced hunters and our keen eye for matching riders with suitable horses will ensure your day is filled with just the right level of adrenaline!
Our club is very friendly and open to new hunters and visitors. You will be treated like a long lost family member!
We offer Hunt Hirelings in South-Africa, to hunt with the Cape Hunt Club.
