SFWHH Opening Hunt
Time & Location
About the Event
Every year Opening Hunt/Blessing of Hounds is an exciting time. Our horses are braided and most likely clipped for their benefit. Huntsman, Master Terry Paine, leads the pack during Opening Hunt and throughout the season. The Blessing of the Hounds is a tradition that goes back a long way. The religious service – first begun in 8th century France by St. Hubert, the patron saint of hunters – has been held every Opening Hunt morning at Santa Fe Hunt since 1969. Visitors welcome to come out and watch.
