The Northern Bloodhounds

The Northern Bloodhounds is registered with the Masters of Draghounds and Bloodhounds Association and organises hunt meets and events in County Durham and North Yorkshire.

We promote and pursue the sport of hunting a human quarry with a pack of bloodhounds bred and trained for this purpose. Riding to bloodhounds is a recognised equestrian hound sport in its own right and is distinct in character from other forms of hunting.

Novice rider or professional, young or old, the traditional sport of riding to bloodhounds is a great way to spend time with your horse. There will be the opportunity to jump natural obstacles like hedges and ditches, hunt jumps or to follow a non-jumping route if you prefer.

Beautiful, varied countryside, a warm welcome and an exciting day’s hunting all ensure that a day out with the Northern Bloodhounds is one that you will remember and want to experience again.
