There is Something for Everyone
The Myopia Hunt community is welcoming to all riders. If you are an experienced foxhunter and would like to ride out with us, consider becoming a Subscribing Member. If you are a seasoned rider but new to foxhunting, Capping for a few rides is a great way to introduce yourself and your horse to hunting.
- Subscribers are members of the hunt who may ride in all meets and participate in all activities and events.
- Patrons support the hunt, but do not ride. They participate in all activities and events.
- Cappers are non-subscribers who ride in the hunt.
- Spectators are welcome to follow the hunt as we ride through each meet’s territory. There are often opportunities to view the hounds at work, the Hunt staff, and the field of riders behind them.
Please feel free to contact Hunt Secretary, Pam Mehlman, if you would like to join us.
For riders, there are two fields, a Jumping Field, and a Hilltopping Field for those who desire an opportunity to view the hounds at a slower pace.
The Myopia Hunt also offers meets dedicated to Juniors during all seasons. These “Junior Hunts” are clearly published in the hunt fixtures and on this web site’s Calendar. On Junior Hunts, the Juniors ride at the front of the Hunt and are assigned the roles of Field Master and Whippers-in. Adults on quiet horses are welcome to ride behind the Juniors. For more information on the Junior Hunt program, please visit the Juniors tab in this section

Even if you do not ride, we welcome you to join the Hunt community as a spectator, volunteer, or patron. There are many events, both mounted and unmounted, to enjoy. There is no need to be a member of the Hunt or a member of the Club to participate in all the fun and exciting activities sponsored by our group.
We hope you will join us!
