More About Us
The Cheshire Drag Hunt was formed as an amalgamation of the Cheshire Farmers and the North East Cheshire, it has over 75 years existence, it now hunts from Warrington down to Endon and from Tarporley to the peak district including the flat plains of Cheshire.
Everyday we hunt we cater for all levels of rider, from the beginner to the experienced and children alike. We hunt one day a week with the occasional bye day.
Within The Cheshire Drag Hunt, all the masters make a point with dealing directly with our farmers and agree before any hunt which route they would prefer.
We then use a runner to lay down the scent on the agreed route, and Des Evans (The Runner), then uses his experience to run where the fox would go and therefore gives the field a good days hunting.
We Autumn hunt in September, then the season begins in October and goes through until March with a good mounted field and many who simply coming out on foot to enjoy watching our hounds work on the scent.
