Our members are adults and children, men and women, professionals and students; all bound together by their love of riding to hounds, or simply their interest in belonging to a group who loves the outdoors and takes pleasure in horse related activities.
Interested, but a little afraid?
Start off slow with our new Trial/Trail membership.
Beginning in April we will have several scheduled trail rides (no hounds). Each trail ride will have two groups to accommodate a faster and slower ride. Get accustomed to the property with ease and introduce your horse to hounds slowly and be ready to ride to hounds by October! If hunting is not for you but you love Bridlespur, join as a social member instead and just trail ride and party with us. We’re a fun group of people.
