The South

The South Dorset Hunt is the smallest of the four Dorset packs in terms of the size of the country and of the mounted field - and arguably the friendliest!

With the most varied country of the four it enables us to hunt for the longest period of autumn, winter and spring. From the wet, small field, well hedged clay of the Blackmore Vale in the north (hunted until the end of January,) to the sweeping open expanses of the downland chalk which makes up the majority of the country, to the heathland and forests of the Purbecks in the east. Add in the stunning Jurassic coast from Weymouth to Swanage, and you have one of the most varied hunting countries in England.

The South Dorset Hunt Meets on Tuesdays, alternate Thursdays and Saturdays, 10:45 during the main season (Nov-April). During autumn hunting hounds meet five days a week from beginning of September until opening meet which is normally on the last Saturday in October.

Come out with us! and for those of you who are new to hunting try us for a day. Contact our Secretary Mrs Louly Thornycroft by phone (01258 860614) or email loulythornycroft@homecall.co.uk beforehand, and she can advise on a suitable meet, depending on your experience, and tell you the cost.

It is a condition that everyone coming hunting is a current member of the Countryside Alliance and that everyone hunts at their own risk.
