Stirrup Cup at Fifer’s Fields
October 8, 2022 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am
The Sewickley Hunt Club’s Stirrup Cup Fox Hunt is returning to Hollow Oak’s Fifer Fields Conservation area!
Come out to see the horses and dogs at an official fox hunt!
Don’t worry – this is a drag hunt! No foxes will be harmed at the Stirrup Cup.
How does drag hunting differ from fox hunting?
In drag hunting, a pack of hounds follows a scent laid by a human rather than pursuing a live animal. The line is laid over a pre-determined route to take advantage of the best jumping opportunities.
What can we expect from a day’s hunting?
The meet starts at 8:00am – the dogs are horses arrive at 7:30am. Hollow Oak will offer drinks and snacks.
The hounds will then move off and when they pick up the scent and start to run, the rest of the group follows!
