Andrews Bridge Foxhounds has been recognized with the Master of the Foxhounds Association since 1918. Our home country is in the heart of Amish farmlands in southern Lancaster and Chester Counties, with many woodlands and is paneled with chicken coops, log fences, post and rail, and board fences. Our second country is in Fair Hill, along southern Chester County PA bordering the Mason Dixon line into MD. This area has a lot of woodlands and rolling hills for open galloping. We have about 45 couples of Penn-Marydel hounds and recently built a state of the art kennel. We are a subscription hunt, with three fields of riders, and hunt 3 days per week from August to the end of March. After all hunts, we publish a synopsis of the day on our Facebook page. For more details, in menu, go to Hunting section.
We are proud of the role that we play in our community. We are a family of members, landowners, neighbors and friends. We have developed a genuine rapport and relationship between our Amish and "English" neighbors. We have been actively involved in placing thousands of acres in conservancy, and in protecting and preserving the environment, while concurrently promoting mounted fox chasing and its intimate relationship with the land.
WE INVITE YOU TO COME HUNT WITH US. We have several experienced fox hunters for daily hire, and have horse stalls available for daily or longer use.
