Important Information

It has been bought to our attention that people unable to attend Sunday’s Doddington Ride are trying to sell their tickets… Please be advised that due to the current situation with COVID 19 and the Track and Trace system, we require all riders details. Therefore if you are selling your tickets to somebody else they need to get in touch – if we do not have your correct information you will not be able to take part.
Thank you



We would like to give a big thanks to everyone who was involved in todays event.
From Doddington Place Gardens🌱🌿, Landowners, those behind the scenes with admin duties, event organisers, route markers, those in the secretaries tent, fence builders and fence repairers 🙈, stewards, photographers📸, those at the start line and to those who parked lorries and vehicles.
There are many, many people to thank and without their help, a ride like this would never have been able to take place.
Most of all, we would like to thank those who rode today and entered the event.
We all hope that you had a fantastic day and we hope to see you back at one of our dates next year 🐴🤞🏼
With thanks from the Doddington Ride Team

Members of the hunt enjoyed their first social ride this year on 2nd August 2020. The sun shone and spirits were high as the riders practiced their jumping skills before hacking through some of Kent’s most beautiful countryside. Even the horses were pleased to see each other.

The AVTH is extremely grateful to the landowners and all those that supported this event. Thank You.

Look out for more rides in the coming months. More pictures can be seen at:
