About Us

foxright

The Palm Beach Hounds started in 1979 when Ken and Arle Adams were vacationing in Vermont.  While attending a party, they met the Master of the Green Mountain Hunt who mentioned that they were disbanding.

Through the course of the evening and many martinis, Arle had several discussions about the hounds. When morning came and heads began to clear…she realized, “they had bought the pack of hounds!”

The Palm Beach Hounds registered with the Masters of Foxhounds Association of America (MFHA) in the 1980-81 season. The MFHA officially recognized the Palm Beach Hounds in the 1983-84 season. The hunt is a registered “drag pack” with obedient crossbred foxhounds. Palm Beach Hounds and its members have enjoyed the “thrill of the chase” for many years without harm to quarry.

The pack consists of Crossbred Foxhounds that go out twice weekly (Wednesday & Saturdays) in season. The season runs from November through the end of March. We permit visitors, for details please contact the Honorary Hunt Secretary in advance.

Our territories are mostly level with open fields, pinewoods, sand banks, and streams. Most jumps are 3’ and 3’3” coops. We welcome and accommodate Hilltoppers (those who choose not to jump). For those who are new to the sport or want a slower pace, a “walk-trot” field is available by prior arrangement.

Palm Beach Hounds is a group of riders dedicated to enjoying traditions, beautiful pristine country and the opportunity to view game in its natural habitat. Fair play and social activities are some of the benefits for Members and Friends. Join us at our hound benefit parties, hunt breakfasts, open hunter paces, stirrup cups, and the year end Hunt Ball Weekend.
