The Dartmoor Hunt country is bounded by the Rivers Dart and Tamar, and the sea. There are a few jumps, mostly hunting is on the Moor which has some good going, some bogs, and parts scattered with granite boulders.
Hunting on Dartmoor is one of the best ways to get to know the moor, and to learn to ride on the moor with respect. However it is not for the faint-hearted, but with simple preparation, can be enjoyed by most competent riders. A good day with the right horse, company and weather can be one of the best days of your life. The season starts in early August and runs through until mid-April, (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday in the autumn and Tuesdays and Saturdays from the Mid October).
However you choose to follow hounds the one thing that everyone who hunts has in common is that they come because they enjoy it.
