About

The EQUITANA Hunt Chase is an arena adaption of the historical sport of Fox Hunting in which horses and hounds are used to track and chase foxes across rough terrain and over obstacles.

Hunting with hounds originated in the 16th century in England and Wales. It continues to take place in several other countries including Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Italy and the United States.

Hunting horses must be well-mannered, have the athletic ability to clear large obstacles such as wide ditches, tall fences and rock walls, and have the stamina to keep up with the hounds.
