about us

The South and West Wilts is one of the oldest foxhound packs in England, founded by the 5th Lord Arundell in 1690.

The Hunt is particularly welcoming to visitors and has a reputation for being friendly and encouraging newcomers. The country is ideal for experienced riders, as well as for beginners of all ages, with plenty of easy options to cross the country. Most people wear traditional riding clothes, but newcomers are welcome to wear comfortable and tidy kit. Special rates are available for newcomers and can be arranged by contacting the Secretary.


There are many social events throughout the year, and everyone is encouraged to join the very strong Supporters Club. Hunting commences at the beginning of September and carries on until the end of March.

Hunting is conducted within the terms of the Hunting Act at all times.

If you want to experience the thrill of crossing wonderful country behind a pack of hounds, while feeling part of a friendly and welcoming crowd of people, contact the Hunt Secretary, Jeremy Cox at info@swwh.co.uk.
