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.
Members enjoy their time together whether it is riding their trusted mount at a hunt fixture, training a young horse on an off season trail ride, or cubbing with the young hounds in the Fall. It's a 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/fox chasing sport.
Welcome Guests & Juniors
For new Foxhunter hopefuls, Marlborough Hunt Club offers a Foxhunting Clinic each fall to introduce horses and riders to the sport. Guests are welcome. The first Sunday of each month during the season is Junior hunt day!
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.
