Welcome to the Norfolk Hunt Club.

The Norfolk Hunt Club is one of the oldest registered Fox Hunts in the United States. Norfolk began as a drag hunt in Dedham, Massachusetts in 1895 and moved to Dover, Massachusetts in 1903. We hope you will enjoy our website and learn about our Club, the sport of foxhunting and all the wonderful events we provide for riders, spectators and volunteers.

Be sure to check below for the listings of our hunt fixtures (the times and locations of foxhunts) and our special events.


Our spring hunt season runs from mid April to the end of May with Ratcatcher attire. Our fall season starts in September (Ratcatcher attire) and our formal season begins in October through the end of November. Click "Learn More" for specifics about time and place of fixtures.


Norfolk has a host of events throughout the year. Horse shows, hunter trials, hunter paces and Polo in the Country are crowd pleasers for participants and spectators alike.
