Super Jumps Day, Pakenham Racing Club, Tynong on Sunday 26th June, 2016
Over the 160 year history of Melbourne Hunt, its members have held affiliations with the racing industry, generally through the mutual respect for the wonderful animal, that is the horse.
It was the Melbourne Hunt's pleasure and honour to be asked to parade our hounds at the Super Jumps Day, at the spectacular new Pakenham Race Track.
Our Huntsman, with some of our members paraded a pack of our hounds, providing a demonstration of our specially bred and trained hounds - with the sound of the Huntsman's horn, the cry of the hounds, and the thud of the horses hooves, the public were shown a little bit of history and tradition, something that we enjoy every week during the hunting season.
