Traditionally known as 'The Ross', The Ross Harriers Hunt was formed around 1820. William Cobbett, during one of his ‘rural rides’ had a day with them in 1821. Today the hounds are traditional stud-book harriers, around twenty-one inches in height. As well as their own, there is Dunston, Holcombe and High Peak blood. The Ross have shown successfully at Peterborough and Honiton Hound Shows.
The Ross Harriers Hunt has its own registered country, stretching from Hay on Wye in the north, Huntley in the south and from Monmouth in the west to Trumpet in the east. The hunt boundary which overlaps the Welsh border is dissected by the River Wye. It takes in all of the South Herefordshire hunt country as well as parts of the Golden Valley, Cotswold Vale Farmers’, Ledbury and Monmouthshire foxhound countries.
The point-to-point is held in February on a new course at Monmouth Showground
The Ross Harriers are a small, friendly pack who welcome new comers to come and hunt with them. There is a very active Supporters Club who arrange a large variety of fund raising events throughout the year.
Dear Members, Supporters and Friends,
In the light of the Prime Minister's announcement at 2000hrs on 4 Jan 21, the Hunting Office has suspended all hunting activities for the duration of the 3rd national lockdown. Hounds continue to be cared for and exercised from kennels by Staff (including unpaid staff).
I hope you, your families and friends stay well in the current epidemic.
