Fox Hunting

Maryllu Gallagher and PM Jamaica

Tally Ho!

Aside from Horse Showing, the sport of Fox Hunting is actively pursuided at Ridge Point Stables. Marylu Gallagher is a Joint-Master of South Creek Foxhounds, which is Florida's oldest foxhunt, and attends the hunt twice a week during Season.

Florida enjoys a hunting season of September through February where we hunt the red and gray fox, bob cat, and coyote. Our typical hunt terrain is pasture land, palmetto bushes, pine and oak forests, and cypress swamps. The fences are primarily solid, inviting coops.

Ridge Point also attends the many hunter paces that are sponsored by South Creek Foxhounds throughout the year. This allows our riders, both fox hunters and non-fox hunters, the opportunity to ride out and simulate a hunt, but at our own pace. Ridge Point is also the location of the South Creek Foxhounds Hunter Trials.

Hunting with South CreekFor the fox hunter looking for a place to board their hunt horse, Ridge Point offers many different options, including keeping your hunt horse fit and transporting them to and from the hunt. Call us to design a boarding package that benefits both you and your hunt horse.

We also offer seasonal boarding for our out of state friends that would like to keep their hunting horses fit when their own hunting season is over.

If you are in the market for a hunt horse, let us know. We may have something available or know of someone that does. We can help you find the right horse to enhance your fox hunting experience.
