Newcomers to hunting will find many of their questions answered in a new free leaflet from the Countryside Alliance.
The pocket-sized document addresses typical issues for first-timers, such as etiquette and turn-out, and gives top tips to help people enjoy their first experience in the hunting field. It is suitable for adults and children.
CA spokesperson Henrietta Rutgers said: “Attending a meet for the first time can be a daunting experience, but need not be with a bit of prior information.
“Our new document aims to encourage people to try hunting as well as giving them peace of mind by answering some essential questions such as, ‘Will hunting suit me as I don’t like leaving the ground?’ and ‘Can I still go hunting if I don’t have a horse?’”
The leaflet will be launched at the CA stand at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials (7-11 May), or as a PDF at www.countryside-alliance.org, alongside the previously published booklet aimed specifically for children, An Introduction to Foxhunting.
