Staff College Drag Hunt Meet Card 2019/2020

The Staff College Drag Hunt is very fortunate to enjoy the support of a large number of land owners, farmers and the military who allow us to drag hunt across their land. Out of consideration to our landowners some meets may have to change at short notice depending upon ground conditions, grazing requirements of stock, planting of crops and the requirements of the military. We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible but please keep an eye on the meet card for any changes.

All meets at 12:30pm unless specified otherwise, hounds will move off at 12:45pm.

If you will be joining us at any of the meets, please contact Jessica Telford, Hon. Sec, by the Friday before the meet: secretary@sandhurstdraghunt.co.uk  07934 530880
