Located in Southern Maryland, The Marlborough Hunt Club territory takes in Prince George’s, Anne Arundel, and parts of Calvert and Charles counties. Established in 1936 by it’s 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’s riding their trusted mount at a hunt fixture, training a young horse on an off season trail ride, or cubbing with the young hounds by foot or bicycle 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 sport.
