Southdown & Eridge Hunt

The hunt was formed in 1981 by the amalgamation of the Southdown Hunt and the Eridge Hunt.

Since 18th February 2005 the Southdown & Eridge Hunt has adapted to operate within the law and restrictions of the Hunting Act 2004, maintaining the tradition of a mounted and foot followers meet with hounds then hunting pre-laid artificial trails or lines, allowing followers to watch the hounds working. The hunt is also permitted to hunt rabbits, providing a valuable service to their landowners.

During the course of each hunting day they combine activities to provide a varied and unpredictable day for our followers.

The Police are aware of thier activities.

The hunt meets regularly during open season with children’s meets during school holidays.

The Southdown & Eridge Hunt also support local rural community events, takes part in educational activities, organises hunt rides that are open to all and continue to support local farmers with their fallen stock and bereavement services.

The Southdown & Eridge Hunt kennels are located in Ringmer, East Sussex. Near to the South Downs with country covering part of East Sussex and West Kent.
