The fall hunts, a tradition dating back almost 500 years. The British were the original group that started this tradition of riding horseback while hounds chased down the foxes who were killing the livestock. Now in current times, the annual fall hunts have changed from actually hunting a fox to more of an opportunity for like-minded friends to get together with their horses for an afternoon of riding. Many traditions still exist from the early days of what clothing attire is required, the style of riding, and the files of the field. Fall hunts are a great way to enjoy an afternoon of field cantering and cross country jumping before the winter snow takes over.
