Fort Leavenworth HuntWelcome to FLH
The Fort Leavenworth Hunt is the only active military hunt in the United States. The focus of the hunt is to enjoy fellowship, beautiful countryside, and the thrill of riding to hounds as they follow the scent of a fox or coyote.
The Fort Leavenworth Hunt was organized in 1926 by the 10th Cavalry Regiment. It was disbanded during WWII, but in 1964 the pack of hounds was reconstituted and registered with the Masters of Foxhounds Association (MFHA). The pack was recognized by the MFHA in 1966, and the hunt has been active since then. Hunt membership is open to the public—our subscribers include military personnel and their families as well as civilians.
FLH proudly follows the deeply-rooted traditions of foxhunting. However, our quarry is typically coyote rather than fox, and the focus of the hunt is on camaraderie and the thrill of riding to hounds through beautiful countryside rather than on catching or dispatching the quarry.
With four riding fields, FLH welcomes riders of all disciplines and varying skill levels. Whether you prefer to take it slow or to go at speed—jumping obstacles as they come—we invite you to come enjoy our wonderful sport!
