Ottawa Valley Hunt (OVH) invites riders under 19 years of age to come experience our drag hunt with hounds on Saturday, September 30. This is a great opportunity to broaden horizons and to try something new both for the horse and rider. Did you know that juniors can ride as guests with us up to three times a year and that OVH’s membership fees are greatly reduced for juniors and even free for juniors who qualify for our junior program?

The junior hunt will offer three pace groups - fields - to choose from: 3rd field that does walk, trot and some canter, 2nd field that does walk/trot/canter and some optional jumping as well as the 1st field which will follow the hounds most closely and do walk/trot/canter and jumping. Each junior is expected to have a coach/instructor or other capable adult rider to ride with them in the field. There will be a pizza lunch immediately following the hunt.

We look forward to riding with you!
