When the rest of the equestrian community tucks in for the winter, foxhunting comes alive. The Arapahoe Hunt Club rides on Sundays and Wednesdays from mid-October until April. Ride cross-country in pursuit of enthusiastic hounds across the prairie at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, and enjoy the welcoming community of the Arapahoe Hunt, which has been participating in the sport here in Colorado for over 100 years! Want to give it a try? Join us, either on your own horse or lease one for the day. Don’t forget to bring a dish to share for the potluck Hunt Breakfast afterwards!

Horses are available for lease for riders of all levels, and we offer multiple fields riding at different speeds - whether you’re an adrenaline junkie with a need for speed who wants to keep up with the hounds, or a casual rider who wants to take it easy and take in the scenery, there is something for everyone. If bringing your own horse to its first hunt, we recommend hanging out in the back until your horse gets used to the exciting atmosphere of foxhunting.

Every November, the Arapahoe Hunt hosts Rendezvous week, a 5-day foxhunting event, in conjunction with visiting hunts from neighboring states. We will hunt on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, as well as host the Rocky Mountain Field Hunter Trials. Join the hunt riders Saturday evening for the Huntsmen’s Dinner, a formal affair with delicious dining and an auction of fabulous hunt-related treasures.  Sunday will be the Field Hunter Championship. Feel free to join for a day or two, the whole week, or enter as a contestant!
