Hunt horses come in all shapes and sizes. From pony to draft horse, just about any breed can become a suitable field hunter. The most important qualities are a good mind, careful feet, and athletic ability. The 8 Easy Lessons are the ideal place to introduce your horse to the sport, but new riders and horses are welcome any time during the season. FLH does not keep horses to be leased for hunts, but—depending on your needs and skill level—it is often possible to find a member willing to lease a field hunter for a day or even a season. Contact the Honorary Secretary, Jason Hill, to inquire and be connected with members who may be able to help.
The Fort Leavenworth Hunt loves juniors (riders under 18 years of age) and has a long history of helping them to grow into lifelong enthusiasts. Junior riders are welcome in any field, so long as they are accompanied by a responsible guardian.
