More About Us
The Cheshire Drag Hunt and Cheshire Bloodhounds Hunt have amalgamated this year 2016. After joining the Cheshire Farmers Drag Hunt & North East Cheshire Drag Hunt over a year ago we have now joined all three hunts together. The Cheshire Bloodhounds was formed in 2013 by Julie & Charles Finney and have had 3 very good seasons they have a great following from their supporters. Charles was a previous master of Cheshire Farmers Drag hunt for 10 years and which is now the Cheshire Drag Hunt. We thought that is was a good time and the way forward to join all the hunts together giving people of all levels of riding the opportunity to hunt over fantastic Cheshire countryside.
Combined together the hunts has over 75 years existence, it now hunts from Warrington down to Endon and from Tarporley to the peak district including the flat plains of Cheshire.
Everyday we hunt we cater for all levels of rider, from the beginner to the experienced and children alike. All jumps optional. We hunt every Saturday and every other Sunday with the occasional bye day.
Within The Cheshire Drag and Bloodhounds Hunt, all the masters make a point with dealing directly with our farmers and agree before any hunt which route they would prefer.
We then use a runner to lay down the scent on the agreed route when we hunt with the Draghounds, and Des Evans (The Runner), then uses his experience to run where the fox would go and therefore gives the field a good days hunting. The Bloodhounds hunt a human scent
We Autumn hunt/Hound Exercise in September, then the season begins in October and goes through until March with a good mounted field and many who simply coming out on foot to enjoy watching our hounds work on the scent.
