Important News Updates

It's nearly the end of another fabulous season of sport and companionship, what a marvelous time it's been! Join us for Closing Meet this Saturday, March 25, riding from the clubhouse at HIPICO Santa Fe, hounds moving off at 9 am and breakfast to follow.

For our closing hunt breakfast this year, we'll have a little competitive angle, bring your most fabulous creations and we'll have them judged, with prizes to follow! We may also have some recognition of our inner superhero natures, as we dress for success in true Caza Ladron "Closing Hunt Theme" fashion.

Liability Waiver and Release
For all hunt guests. Please fill the waiver out and bring it with you to your first hunt! Very important!

A great hunt on February 4th as a full fledged member! Am told the hounds were well behaved, perhaps to welcome me?

"Miss Delilah greatly enjoyed her outing with you, Amelia, and she and the others napped heartily yesterday in the sunshine! They all got big, hot beet pulp mashes with plenty of electrolytes Saturday night and seemed very pleased about it all."
