We ride to hounds twice weekly from September to April, and exercise our hounds from horseback year-round. Founded over 85 years ago, our hunt is still thriving today, with over 100 members.

RFHH follows long-standing traditions of foxhunting: following hounds on horseback, with members wearing classic attire, using English tack. A mounted huntsman directs a pack of hounds; the hounds respond to the various calls of the hunting horn, with caution exercised not to harm the fox or coyotes whose scent they follow.

In addition to Gahanna, Rocky Fork Headley Hunt has hunting privileges at locations in Licking and Perry counties. Our hunt season runs mid-August through early April (excluding January), and we typically hunt one weekday and one day on the weekend throughout the season, with some additional hunting on holidays. Various levels of riding speed are offered, to suit equestrians of all backgrounds, including those relatively new to riding in the open.
