Welcome to this website which helps open a treasure trove of fun and entertainment for everyone. Whilst our country may be small in comparison with some hunts, we more than make up for it for its wealth of diversity. Sitting between Exmoor and Bridgwater, we have wonderful vale country, open moorland of the Quantocks and perhaps the most stunning of all, a large stretch of cliff country. What can be better galloping along old turf, with the sea to your right, the moor to your left and a pack of wonderful hounds in front.

For many, hunting is a part of our lives, for others it is a dream we want to enter but are not sure if our skills and beloved horse will be good enough. Let us say right now that whatever the size or age of you or your horse, you will not be out of place in joining us. By touring this site, you will begin to see that the West Somerset Vale Hunt is fun and offers constant entertainment for us all. Importantly our hunt is about supporting all within our local community from individuals to businesses, both large and small. So whether you are looking for a plumber, a chimney sweep, someone to do your hair at home or you need a new driveway, perhaps an extension to your house, look no further than our business directory page.

For our visitors from other packs, we can assure you proper West Country hospitality and as reported in Horse & Hound, hunting with us is 'like hunting with three packs in one day' due to our country being so open and diverse. So come on down for an adventure, we are only 20 mins from junction 25 of the M5. It should also be noted that due to our unique country we continue hunting well into March - so why not make a mini-break of it and have a day or so with us, combined with a day with our neighbours, the Quantock Staghounds

We always operate within the law and have a brilliant relationship with our farmers and landowners. This unique relationship opens up uninvestigated countryside allowing us all to get close to nature and learn new skills.
