About Trail Hunting
“While the Hunting Act is in place, one of the several legal alternatives to provide activity for Hunts is trail hunting. This is for hounds to follow an artificial scent, which has been laid in such a way as to mimic a real fox hunt. It would ideally not be the flat out gallop typical of drag hunting, it would take in different types of country and be a challenge for the hounds. It is one of the ways to keep the infrastructure of Hunts intact until such time as repeal of the Hunting Act can be achieved.”
Alastair Jackson (Director, Hunting Office)
The Plantation Bramdean has horses available for hire — all shapes, sizes and ability available. From thrusting at the front to hacking at the back of the field, we can supply a horse available to suit everyone’s needs. We deliver horses to the meet and provide an escort service if needed. Horses available to try and hack before the hunting day if needed. Please contact Julie Butler on 07771 634718 or

To all members, subscribers, supporters and associates of the HHH.
Many of you will be aware that Hunting in England is enjoying a bit of an upward trend in most parts of the country. The law as it stands has calmed the debate, at least for the time being. Many now feel more confident to hunt within the law, newcomers are growing in confidence and numbers throughout hunting communities in England are increasing. But our numbers in the field are dwindling and there is a smidgeon of grey hair amongst both the mounted and supporters.
The result is that the cost of our sport is being born by smaller and smaller numbers of the same people and, if we continue in this way, we will eventually run into serious financial difficulty. In fact, had it not been for the efforts of just a few amongst us that moment might have been upon us quite soon. There is one clear solution to our predicament on which we can all work together. Hunts are organic in nature and continually need reinvigorating with new members and spirit (not that we lack that, but we could do with more of it).
We need to make a big effort together to recruit new members, subscribers, associates and supporters and to attract new blood through introduction, education, entertainment and friendship. I have been asked by the Committee to help improve our income. We cannot keep on calling on the same people to squeeze yet more money from their half empty pockets so, like any organisation, we have to grow to survive. That is where we can all work together. We have done it before with remarkable results at the election when we surprised even ourselves at the huge force of our combined effort to get something done. What we need now actually requires less time and less physical effort than our last success, but perhaps more concentrated and persistent thought to achieve what we need to do: raise our numbers.
If each one of us just found one new associate, be it a member, subscriber, supporter of occasional cap payer, our numbers would double and the income to the Hunt with it. My proposal is simple. We each do what we can in the next three months to identify those who we think would be interested in hunting with us and we invite them to meet us all at a weekend lunchtime drinks party probably in June/July.
Could I therefore ask you all to give some serious thought to finding just one new member, subscriber, associate or supporter in the coming months. If you are not willing to approach them yourself let me know and I would be happy to do it. Meanwhile if there are any of you who feel that they might like to help me in raising the Hunt's income I would be pleased to hear from you. We know what a combined force we can be if we work together and, as with the last time, it can be a lot of fun and rewarding at the same time.
