The best bits of our foxhunting holidays and riding trips.

When late summer meets early autumn, a sort of magic takes place in the English countryside: harvests are in, the burnt hues of the changing trees light the countryside and the hedgerows creak with abundance.

Spend a week with Blackthorn & Brook in September or October and experience the best of both worlds: long summer rides on one hand and the first taste of a new season’s sport on the other.

This is the perfect trip if you’ve been on one of our riding holidays and are ready to take the next step. Perhaps you simply want to make your debut in the English hunting field but aren’t quite ready for the cut and thrust of winter hunting.

You can, of course, expect all the hallmarks of a Blackthorn & Brook riding vacation: safe horses matched to you, peerless hospitality, and a taste of England you won’t find in the guidebooks.
