The Southdown Hunt Branch, which was formed in 1931, divided into East and West in 1976 when its membership stood at more than 400.
The branch aims to support all levels of riding from very novice to those aiming for the Pony Club Championships. They have about 90 rallies a year and raise a number of teams at mini and novice level in dressage, eventing and show jumping.
Their boundaries stretch from the coast northwards to Ardingly and across to Cross-in-Hand, down to Seaford and along the coast to Portslade and Southwick. The A23 roughly forms our western boundary, just as the A22 is approximately our eastern edge. No boundary, however, is rigid and many of the venues we use are also used by neighbouring Branches. They have excellent relations with these Branches, however, and often organise joint activities and test days.
