Social Activities

The fellowship of foxhunting extends beyond the Hunt Field through various social and riding activities planned by the Hunt members and the Social Committee. Members are encouraged to participate.

Stirrup Cup:

This is a mounted libation served at events such as the Opening Meet, Thanksgiving Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day or any special occasion when there are guests.

Hunt Breakfast:

This is a gathering after the Hunt for refreshments and an opportunity to share the events of the day with your fellow foxhunters. Hunt jackets should be replaced by tweeds.

Hunter Pace, Hunter Trials, Horse Shows and Trail Rides:

These are riding events that generally include food and fun.

Meet and Mingles:

These are monthly social gatherings at local restaurants, starting at 6:30pm. Members and guests are welcome. Members are encouraged to periodically sponsor the complimentary hors d’oeuvres served at a Meet and Mingle.

Hunt Ball:

The Hunt Ball is a formal event for members and guests.
