OPENING TIME in 1912...

There are lots of photos of the traditional opening meet at Kirby Gate, but if you want to see a unique short film of what the meet was like in 1912 when Captain Frank Forester was MFH and George Leaf was huntsman, click here.

No-one wore 'safe' hats then, but if you ride now, you should. Try on and order a QH® Hunter hat at the Kennels (by prior appointment). A range of sizes is available: just bring your credit or debit card (and your head..). For more details see below.




NEW SEASON — NEW HAT?
BUY NOW!

Last year the Quorn launched its own safe hat. How safe? it meets safety standard VG1 01.040 2014-12 and is kite- and CE-marked accordingly. It is worth noting that from 2017 onwards, hats that meet EN1384 / BSEN1384 but not any 'safer' standard cannot be used for events organised by British Dressage, BHS, British Eventing, British Showjumping and Showing.
The QH® Hunter riding hat was developed for us by makers Charles Owen with critical input from our huntsman Peter Collins. The QH has to ensure the safety of its staff but also wants to retain the high standard of dress expected from the world's best-known Hunt. The Quorn's hat meets the latest safety standards and is modelled as far as possible on the traditional cap used by most huntsmen and many subscribers.

A hat that fits correctly is essential for safety as well as comfort. To enable you to try before you buy, the QH keeps a stock of hats at the Kennels and will advise on fitting.

You can buy online from this website here or our smartphone app or in person at the Kennels. If you need further details, please contact QH Riding Hat on our Contact page



So if you need a new hat (or even if you don't; treat yourself!), buy a safe one - the QH® Hunter hat.
We hope you will like our new hat (and also Mr Collins... who following the QH's custom for professional huntsmen wears a navy blue hat)

Smartphone app

SMARTPHONE? TABLET?

With the QH's popular smartphone 'app' you can now make online payments for s and for other items such as fun rides and social events, and you can also email the QH and MHC (and other) Secretaries – all from within the app. This is complementary to the online payment pages of this website - you can use either, whichever is more convenient - and they offer the same facilities.

See the Events / Newsfeeds page for more details.

And, at the top left-hand corner of this page, you might have noticed a small blue box with three bars. Clicking it displays the menu vertically instead of horizontally and in much larger lettering. This is to help:

The Quorn Hunt was founded in 1696 and takes its name from the Leicestershire village of Quorn where the hounds were kenneled from 1753 until 1904. The Quorn Hunt is one of the best known hunts in England and extends a warm welcome to many visitors from both the UK and internationally.
