Hedge hopping Tips


One of my dreams/nightmares is to go hunting in England or Ireland. While I feel fairly competent about navigating the territories that I hunt, hunting in the UK is an entirely different proposition.

Hedge Hopping
Blackthorn and Brooks offers foxhunting holidays (and some tips for Americans who might find some of the obstacles a tad intimidating).

Here’s a video that was put together by Blackthorn & Brook, a company that organizes riding and foxhunting vacations in England, that gives you some tips on “Hedge Hopping”. Certainly their rider makes it look easy enough and her advice is sound — strong legs, light hands and sit up! Of course, if it were me galloping down to one of those hedges, the loudest sound would be the beating of my heart.

Certainly, if I ever get up the nerve to try this, it’s going to be on a horse that already knows how to do it!

Watch the video and also read their blog post on Hedge Hopping Tips, then let me know if it’s in your future.

    Really digging your blog! I just found you online, and it’s nice to see a good horse blog out there. I just started my own, and it’s still in its infancy at this point. Looking forward to your future posts!
