If you have never ridden to hounds before, those antique hunt prints that have adorned walls throughout history are about to take on a whole new meaning. For most people, a brisk morning, fresh horses, and baying hounds are indeed a life changing experience. We hope it will be for you. Stand forewarned, however, no matter what your riding discipline, it can be addictive!
