A successful hunt starts with proper etiquette, responsibility, and safety. Review our guidelines to prepare yourself and guests.
All equestrians will honor in this section and in all other such related guidelines the adherence to the rules and regulations rich in history and tradition of The Camden Hunt (TCH).
All such equestrians are subject to a high level of behavior standards coupled with common rules of equine etiquette while riding on privately held property governed by the Camden Hunt, whose staff is responsible in overseeing and ensuring capable supervision of maintaining the trails, jumps, and water crossings while cooperating with land owners’ management plans pertaining to timbering and saplings.
- Careless riding is prohibited, as it may hinder others’ ability to control their horses.
- Equestrians are to refrain from riding too close to privately owned barns, houses, paddocks, dirt roads, and driveways. On accessible roads, always ride to the side to help prevent divots for cars.
- It is appropriate to say, “Good Morning” to the masters, if possible, or at least to your field master. At end of the day, thank the masters, huntsmen, and staff for the good day of sport.
Riding in the Field
- All riders are to ride behind the field master in one of the fields, taking the same line and keeping pace.
The order of riding in the First Field is as follows.
The first group should be those riders who are jumping all the jumps which the field master takes: subscribers with colors first, followed by those without.
The next group should be those riders who are jumping only some of the taken jumps: subscribers with colors first followed by those without.
The last group should be those who are not jumping: subscribers with colors first followed by those without.
In the Second Field:
Subscribers with colors
Those without colors.
It is appropriate to share the more forward riding positions of your group. It is always acceptable for a higher ranking subscriber to move back to a lower ranking position. If no subscriber with colors shows interest in riding forward, any subscriber may take a forward position.
Junior subscribers are to be accompanied in the field by an adult member who is responsible for their safety and etiquette.
The huntsman, hounds, and staff have right of way. If a subscriber of the staff needs to pass you, be sure your horse’s head is turned in his direction.
Riders should be quiet during actual hunting. If you need to warn another rider of staff or a hound coming up, a hole in the path, or any other danger, do so as quietly as possible.
- Riders should never speak to the hounds unless requested to do so by the staff.
- If the field master has called for a field reversal, continue to ride forward up to the point of changing direction. Then ride one more horse length before actually turning your horse around. This will ensure that those behind you can continue forward travel.
If a rider wishes to leave the hunt early, he must ensure that his timing and his return travel will not interfere with hunting. If he is unsure, he must ask the advice of the field master. It is important that the retiring rider inform the field of his leaving so that his absence is not mistaken for him being lost and perhaps in trouble.
Remember that our hunt is the guest of those that own the territory we hunt. Please be respectful at all times of the territory and our landowners. If any damage occurs while hunting, it must be reported to the field master.
