The Highmoor Bloodhounds, established in 2012, is Yorkshire’s first pack of Bloodhounds and is registered with the Masters of Draghounds and Bloodhounds Association. Our aim is to ensure that you have an enjoyable days riding in some of the best countryside Yorkshire has to offer.
We promote and pursue the sport of hunting a human quarry with a pack of bloodhounds bred and trained for this purpose. Riding to bloodhounds is a recognised equestrian/hound sport in its own right and is distinct in character from all other forms of hunting.
Novice rider or professional, young or old, the traditional sport of riding to bloodhounds is a great way to spend time with your horse. There will be the opportunity to jump natural obstacles like hedges and ditches, hunt jumps or to follow a non-jumping route if you prefer.
Beautiful, varied countryside, a warm welcome and an exciting day's hunting all ensure that a day out with the Highmoor Bloodhounds is one that you will remember and want to experience again.
“Just wanted to say I am really looking forward to coming out with you all next season. I think the fact you hold kiddies' days, optional jumping and overall a nice day out is fab. I love the fact you're bringing the fun back to hunting and it's not all doom and gloom! Fabulous Hunt!!!!"
"Huge thank you to everyone for making us welcome today. It was a great 'first time out in a group' experience and everyone was so lovely and thoughtful. I'll be putting this on my timeline so everyone knows what a great bunch you are."
