Hounds and Kennels

We have six litters of puppies born this year (2018)

The Kennels are run by hunt staff who report to one of the Joint Masters. We have a hardworking and efficient team who all live on-site to ensure that the hounds and horses have 24 hour care and supervision.

The VWH also has the benefit of a first class pack of hounds. The breeding policy has been overseen by Mr Martin Scott since 1977, when he joined the Mastership for six seasons and shared the horn with Sidney Bailey. This continuity, and Mr Scott’s world renowned expertise in hound breeding, has paid dividends, both in the field and at the Hound Shows.

The VWH show hounds at Harrogate, Peterborough, Ardingly, The Royal Welsh and Honiton, and the huntsman Philip Hague produces them to the highest standard often coming home with first prize or a championship!

The hounds also parade at local events to give people a chance to meet them and talk to Philip and the masters about the hounds.

We parade at The Cotswold ShowSomerford Show and the Ploughing Championships.
