ATTIRE

Cubbing season (August – October) During cubbing months royal blue polo shirt as well as Ratcatcher attire are appropriate. Hacking jackets should be earth-tone color, very subtle plaids, checks, herringbone or houndstooth patterns. Ties, or colored or patterned stock ties are permissible. Black or brown boots. Dark color ASTM safety vests are permitted.

 

Helmets MUST be worn. ASTM headgear is highly encouraged.

 

Formal Season (October – March) The Opening Meet of the formal season is the first Saturday in October. Formal attire is worn on Saturdays and Holidays from Opening Day until the end of the season. Ratcatcher is worn on weekdays during formal season.

 

Gentleman formal attire– Plain black hunting jacket/frock coat, with 3 black buttons; white stock tie; canary or tattersall waistcoat; rust, buff or tan breeches; and black boots.

 

Lady formal attire – Plain black hunting jacket/frock coat or navy jacket with 3 plain buttons; white stock tie; canary or tattersall waistcoat; rust, buff or tan breeches; and black boots. Long hair should be worn neatly in a hairnet.

 

Hunt Colors – If you have been awarded colors from another hunt, it is not appropriate to wear those colors while riding with Rolling Rock. You should not wear your Rolling Rock colors when hunting with another hunt unless you have been invited by their Master to do so.  It is appropriate to wear the Rolling Rock colors if we have an away Joint Meet.

 

Joint Meets and formal Hunt Teas - Following hunting, it is proper to wear a hacking jacket when attending a Hunt Tea/Breakfast. Spurs should be removed and boots should be clean.

 

The rules of etiquette associated with foxhunting can seem a bit overwhelming but they are for safety reasons, courtesy to others, and to preserve wonderful historic hunting traditions. We hope this answers any question you may have. Above all, have fun.
