About This Hunt

Hunt Country The country, which is in Northumberland, is nearly all hill and open moorland astride the Scottish/English border. It is mostly heather and white grass, with in-bye around Otterburn and Bellingham. It is good open galloping country with few jumps but plenty of drains. A blood horse of 16 hands or a three-quarter bred with good feet is needed, with a mind that can read soft going and the stamina to climb the hills and cover the country. Adjacent Hunts are the North Tyne, Haydon, Tynedale, Morpeth, College Valley and North Northumberland, West Percy, Liddesdale, Jed Forest and the Duke of Buccleuch's.

Hunt History The Hunt is of very old standing. For more than 130 years, as far back as records go, the Hunt enjoyed a long family connection. Hounds belonged to the Robson and the Dodd families during that period. In 1951 Jacob Robson resigned the Mastership and handed over the pack to a Committee.

Secretary: G. Morrison.
