Fancy being a quarry?
We are always on the look out for new quarries. In order to be a quarry you need to have a good level of fitness, run regularly over ever changing terrain (marathon or fell runners are ideal) and be prepared to be licked (by the bloodhounds only we promise!) on being caught! A hunting day covers approximately 12-20 miles in 2/3 hours.
BBC Countryfile's Ellie Harrison told H&H: "Getting chased by a pack of bloodhounds was a first for me and I found the experience exhilarating, terrifying and exhausting.
"The approaching sounds of the hounds baying, riders, the horn and the ground thundering behind them are a very effective way to improve your fitness rapidly!"
