For many, foxhunting is not only a way of life, but, a family affair. Young and old alike join in the myriad of activities for members, gathering together in festive spirit. Once an invitation of membership is issued by the Masters to you or your family, there are different levels in the dues structure to choose from based on your interest and your situation: introductory to student, single member to family, riding to social and even out-of- town.
Since hospitality runs high, Hillsboro Hounds has events for every season year round. From Pony Club/Youth Day in the spring and Puppy Show in late summer, to fall’s Landowners’ Picnic & Dove Shoot there is food and fun for all. And for the true foxhunter, summer trail rides blend into the fall preseason just in time for horses to be ‘fit ‘n ready’ for formal season and the much-anticipated Opening Hunt, complete with its grand “Blessing of the Hounds”. A more beautiful sight is hard to find!
