There will be no meet held in Sleaford this year of the Blankney Hunt hounds. This long standing tradition has always been a much anticipated event in people’s social calendar where the coming together of the hunt and hounds with the general public has always been and will continue to be a spectacle to behold. The level of support we have always received is truly humbling, we cannot thank people enough for this and long may it continue at future Boxing Day meets.
Unfortunately, as the Covid pandemic continues to hold us firmly in its grasp, the only morally and legally correct course of action is to forgo the Boxing Day meet for this year to ensure the health and safety of everyone concerned.
The Blankney Hunt Committee
The Blankney Hunt was founded in 1871 when the pack split away from the old Burton Foxhounds. The country is predominately plough with some heath land and grass. The terrain consists of dykes, stone walls, hedges and hunt fences. We have been fortunate to have had over 70 acres of woodland coverts bequeathed to the Blankney Hunt over the years and these are continually maintained.
We have a great deal of support from landowners, farmers and shooting friends within the country who allow the Blankney Hunt to cross their land to whom we are always grateful.
Our hunting days are Wednesdays and Saturdays during the season. Visitors are always welcome by prior arrangement with the Hon Secretary, who will be happy to provide details of subscription rates and visitors caps.
