About Us

Formed in 1979 by the late Allister Marshall, MFH and Mr. John Kersley, the Annapolis Valley Hunt is a small but determined hunt club that enjoys a short season of fox hunting from September through December in the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Over rolling farmland, through orchards, woods and on sandy beaches, we ride to hounds, who ultimately follow the scent of “the drag” to a reward of meat scraps. Members truly appreciate the great outdoors and the animals which are the essence of our sport. As we are a “drag hunt”, we are not involved in the hunting or harming of wild animals. At the end of the day, when the hounds are comfortably retired to the kennels, and the horses cared for, members and guests also relax and gather to enjoy a meal and reflect back on the day’s sport.

The Annapolis Valley Hunt is a private non proft club, which operates under the rules and requirements of the Masters of Fox Hounds Association (MFHA) of North America.
