Welcome To The Cape Hunt Website
The Cape Hunt follows a long tradition of riding to hounds in the Cape, going back over a 190 years. The Cape Hunt holds the distinction of being the oldest of the ‘new world’ hunts dating back to 1822.
Drag Hunting is an exhilarating, non-competitive, cross-country, equestrian sport in which riders follow foxhounds that are trained to follow a laid trail of scent. The exciting course is ridden at a canter or a gallop and usually includes numerous jumps and some natural hazards such as river crossings.
