Green Creek Hounds Opening Hunt & Tallyho Tailgate Competition

November 14 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Saturday, November 14th Green Creek Hounds Opening Meet & Tally-Ho Tailgate Competition is open for members and non-members who would like to have a tailgate party and maybe even win the Tailgate Competition. Tailgate spots are $75 for Club Members and $100 for non-Club members. Entry to the “feastivities” will only be granted to riders and pre-paid parking pass vehicles. It will be a great chance to see the Huntsman hunt the hounds and watch the field of riders chase after them and negotiate hunting obstacles.

All Tailgate Tickets are available online at  And guests who want to hunt can order their cap fees there as well. The location is 1398 John Watson Rd. Must be on a horse in the hunt or in a vehicle with a Tally-Ho Tailgate Parking Pass to enter.

Come one and all, young and old, members and guests, long time riders and those who have never seen a horse or hound in person! The Green Creek Hounds Opening Hunt and Tally-Ho Tailgate is open to all members and guests. Come join the fun, interact with our riders, horses, and hounds while you watch and listen to the hunt around you. Learn about a sport older than our country, and participate in our tailgate competition, while enjoying the beautiful atmosphere of the Green Creek Hounds hunt country.
Guest riders are more then welcome to cap with us on opening day! Please contact one of our masters and pay the cap fee below. We welcome guests to all three fields, first, second, and hilltoppers. Our terrain varies from flat along the White Oak and Green River, to steeper as we reach the foothills. Jumps vary in size and style, and most have go-arounds.

Cash Prize for the Best Tailgate!

Show off your “Best Party” in a car or truck!
If you run out of your own food or drink, a food truck and cash bar will also be available on site.

Similar to restaurants, and to comply with regulations, your tailgate space is your “table”. You must wear a mask when visitng the food truck, bar, or porta-jon. Tailgate spaces will be marked and spaced 10 feet apart. Our ground staff will be wearing masks as well.
