Hubertus by the sea 2018
Pursuing the ‘fox’ (being one of the riders with a fox tail attached to their left arm) is only one of attractions of Hubertus chase organized every autumn at the Maciukiewicz Riding School & Stud. Riding across the countryside, jumping over various obstacles, including trees, logs or ditches, crossing rivers, riding up and down the hills, galloping along a beach… and a common bonfire then party in the evening… these all cause you will have a lot stories to tell …at least to the next Hubertus!
Final chasing is preceded by 3-hours ride out across varied terrain including farmland and woodland including several cross-country efforts described above. Since our guests present various riding skills they are split into 2 or 3 groups each of which rides the route adjusted to the level of experience in horsemanship of its members.
We also do not forget about attractions for non-riding accompanying persons. The carriages (or cars) are following the riders. Everybody meets several times in designated places for drinking hot tea and making pictures of riders on their horses.
