Welcome to the Holcombe Hunt
The Holcombe Hunt has many centuries of tradition and is one of the oldest hunts in the country tracing its lineage back to 1086.
Today, the Holcombe Hunt is a thriving organisation that attracts active support from hundreds of people of all ages and from all walks of life. We are law-abiding people, so our activities today conform to the law, but we remain deeply committed to safeguarding the traditions of hunting, the hounds, and the people whose livelihoods depend on hunting.
The Holcombe has a professional Huntsman Steven Ashworth, who has just completed his first full season as Huntsman with us. He and his wife Diane take a lot of pride in the kennels which are home to 22 ½ couple of mixed Stud Book Harriers.
At Holcombe, we welcome all-comers, and especially those with a mind to enjoy the day's hunting come what may.
The Holcombe Country extends from the large arable farms near Southport, over the grasslands in mid Lancashire and then onto the east Lancashire moors.
Our season starts in September and goes through to early March.
Throughout the summer, the Holcombe Hunt Supporters Club (HHSC) is running a Dressage & Combined Training League (2014) that is open to ALL Equestrians.
There are championships with prizes, sashes & rosettes for each of the nine classes in the League and the Supreme Champion, sponsored by Simmal Aluminium Ltd will also win the:
'Perpetual Holcombe Hunt Supporters Club King Aelfred Trophy'
The HHSC is also organising a Hunter’s Grand Prix on Monday 25th August 2014 at Bold Heath Equestrian Centre. This competition is also open to all equestrians.
There are also special awards for the highest placed Hunt Member in both the League & and Hunter’s Grand Prix.
Please visit the HHSC page for more info on all these events.
