Welcome to Pendle Forest & Craven Hunt

The hunt meets twice a week – Tuesdays and Saturdays – and enjoys the beautiful countryside of the North Yorkshire/Lancashire border region.

With the cooperation and help from farmers we are privileged to have access to some fantastic hunting territory. Our country is all grassland so it provides us with a superb and almost unique opportunity to trail across wonderful pasture, whilst respecting the landowners is a main priority.

The hounds are the stars – their enthusiasm never flags and their performance is top class, both in the show ring and in the field. It is possible to join as a foot follower, from which position you will have ample opportunity to meet the hounds face to face and be charmed by their cheeky affections.

Hunt life continues away from the horses – regular social events keep us all entertained and provide vital fund raising opportunities to keep hounds and staff going.

We need all the support we can get so join up and join in.We can offer good value for your first days hunting so please ring the secretary to discuss the cost if you would like to join us for your first day out. Special rates for available for under 24 year olds.

For any children or young people wanting to hunt with the Pendle, we have a Junior Representative to ensure you are helped before and during your day out with us. Pony Club kids love their days out with us and we love to see them. We offer special days hunting in the holidays for children and all are welcome, lead rein and first timers are all welcome.

Jo Foster or Jane Pighills can be contacted via email at  pfandch@gmail.com for details or ring the secretary Tony Holmes on 07711 195447 for dates and cost.

We try to ensure a non jumping hunt member will be available to keep an eye on the youngest children and ensure their safety and enjoyment is paramount (and that of their parents!!)

We like to have fun and love our hunting (or trailing as we should call it by its real name) The Pendle are a friendly and sociable lot so come along and join us.

Please remember we will be hunting within the law.

Many thanks
