What are the responsibilities of a Whipper-In?

A whipper-in is there to assist the huntsman while hunting. They help keep hounds within the safe boundaries that we are allowed to hunt as well as insure the hounds are working as a pack. A whipper-in may help direct hounds on occasion if they stray away from the others or the huntsman needs the pack to stop or change direction.

A whipper-in also serves as a scout for the huntsman to look for potential problems we could run into (cars, walking dogs, etc.) and for our quarry.

What skills are required to become a whip?

  • The ability and willingness to safely gallop across the country having basic understanding of how to ride hills, navigate creeks, etc.
