Welcome to The Cotswold Hunt Website
The purpose of this website is to provide
information and resources on activities that are supported by The Cotswold Hunt
and its subsidiaries. All or any references to the uses of the term 'hunt' or
'hunting', or any relation thereto used in the text should be interpreted
strictly as meaning hunting within the law as defined under The Hunting Act
2004 and covering such activities as hound exercise.
The object of the Cotswold Hunt, after the
17th February 2005, is to work for the re-introduction of lawful hunting
generally, as well as in the Cotswold Hunt Country, and to that end to maintain
an establishment as a kennel to breed foxhounds in order to retain their
bloodlines and to meet biodiversity responsibilities, to undertake hound and
equestrian activities to facilitate that end and to promote support for these
objectives through social intercourse by members.
We will regularly promote events and encourage
participation in countryside and related events to facilitate fund raising, social
involvement, enjoyment, and better understanding to further these objectives.
Gloucestershire entered Tier 4 on 31st Dec 2020 so all hunting for the season finished.
Best wishes for 2021 and hope that the New Year will herald a safer time and a return to 'normal' life before too long.
Keep safe and well.

Cotswold Hunt Supporters Club
The Cotswold Hunt Supporters Club (CHSC) is an integral part of The Cotswold Hunt. It is an inclusive club for all those interested in field sports.
Its primary aim is to support the supporters of the Cotswold Hunt by passing information and advice, help running events, and organise social activities at an affordable cost.
We have a strong and loyal membership made up of both foot followers and mounted followers.
As well as providing many social events the CHSC aims to raise all-important funds for the benefit of The Cotswold Hunt.
Cotswold Hunt Pony Club
The Cotswold Hunt branch of the Pony Club helps educate children in caring for and riding all types of horses and ponies, from the tiniest trotting Shetland to a polished and glossy eventer, everyone is welcome.
Our branch was formed in 1930, which makes it one of the oldest Pony Clubs in the country. We are part of Area 9 of the Pony Club and we are one of the larger clubs with about 160 members.
Our aim is to have lots for fun along the way, so whilst we have a spread of talent in our members, you don’t have to want to compete to enjoy the activities that are on offer.
