A history of the Brocklesby Hunt hounds

Did you know that the Brocklesby Hunt hounds have been bred on the estate grounds for more than 400 years? Doesn’t that fact blow your mind just a little bit? That’s an exceptionally long time and it’s exceptional dedication on the part of the breeders to create a line of magnificent animals. The breeding goes back to 1700 and the records are one hundred percent complete and accurate as of 1746.

That means generation after generation of breeders has stayed dedicated to the lifestyle. The hounds require training in their field and they receive it from highly qualified masters of the art. They carefully train these dogs to hunt foxes for the pride of their masters. The animals are the reason you should pay a visit to the Brocklesby Hunt, an event at which they welcome spectators should you desire to attend and enjoy.
