We take great pride in welcoming visitors of all levels and our range of country enables us to provide beginners with an enjoyable confidence giving day and our Vale days provide challenging and exciting country, which means visitors travel considerable distances to experience what we have to offer.

We meet at 10.45 every Tuesday and Saturday and alternate Thursdays from the end of October until the end of March. Autumn hunting is from the end of August (harvest depending) until the opening meet at the end of October.

Traditional hunting dress is normally worn during the season and ratcatchers for Autumn hunting and the last few weeks of March.

We want to make your experience with the South Dorset Hunt as special as possible so if we can help put together a hunting package or advise on B&Bs, hirelings, livery for your own horse or directions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Costs of subscriptions, vouchers and day caps are listed below.

The South Dorset hounds hunt within the law and comply with the Hunting Act 2004 by trail hunting. Some trails are laid before the meet and others are laid during the day by a combination of runners and people on horses or quad bikes.

If you would like to come hunting or would like advice on meets then please contact the Hunt Secretary Sarah Wilkinson on info@southdorsethunt.co.uk
