The Marlborough Hunt Club
Located in Southern Maryland, The Marlborough Hunt Club's foxhunting territory takes in Prince George's, Anne Arundel, and parts of Calvert and Charles counties. Established in 1936 by its first Master, Benjamin H. C. Bowie, and a core group of founding and charter members, MHC is dedicated to the tradition, camaraderie, and sport of foxhunting.
Whether it is riding at a hunt fixture, competing in a spring or fall hunter pace, training a young horse on an off season trail ride, or cubbing with the young hounds in the Fall, members take time to appreciate the beautiful countryside and one's equine companion as well as work the hounds. Each meet is ended with a traditional hunt breakfast where members enjoy each other's company and retell the events of the day's foxhunting/foxchasing sport.
Marlborough Hunt Club's Fall Hunter Pace will be held Sept 27, 2015. MHC's Foxhunting Clinic is Sept 19, 2015. The clinic is a great way to get introduced to the sport of foxhunting! Other events happen throughout the season...
What is Foxhunting?
The sport of foxhunting is a competition between fox and hound steeped in tradition and history. For horse and rider, thundering across the terrain and soaring over obstacles while following the chase lightens both the mind and heart.
The Marlborough Hunt Club has a variety of year-round activities and events that offer enjoyment, friendly competition, education, and a chance to relax and socialize with other members, friends, and landowners.
