Welcome to The Border Hunt

Hill and open moorland which straddles the Scottish/English border, mostly heather and white grass with in-bye around Otterburn and Bellingham. Good open galloping country.

Interested?

If you are interested in a day with the Border Hunt, please contact the Hon. Secretary Poppy Hindmarsh, who will help you choose a suitable day and give you directions to the meet.

You don’t need any fancy gear, just a hard hat and suitable clothing for the weather, although members usually wear traditional, practical hunt wear. Some of the Border hunting country can be soft and hilly, it takes a while for horses and riders to get used to this type of ground, but we will look after you and make sure you are guided across the countryside, and safely returned to your box when you are ready to head home!
