MHC hunting arrangements 2021 - 22

By kind permission of the Masters of the Belvoir, Cottesmore, Quorn and Meynell & South Staffs Hunts, members of the Melton Hunt Club who have paid their Hunting Subscription to the Club for the current season by standing order may have a limited number of reduced-rate capped days hunting as follows:

How to book

Each day must be booked in advance with MHC Secretary (see the Contact page) and not the appropriate Hunt Secretary.
Until you have booked, please do NOT approach the Hunt Secretary directly: your request and booking MUST be via MHC Secretary.
Payment for Meynell & South Staffs reduced-rate caps must be made to MHC as usual; payment for the other three Hunts' caps must be made direct to them, but if you pay online here this is handled automatically.

Cap prices

The reduced-rate cap prices are: Even if you are a current MHC member but omit to pay your reduced rate cap in advance, you will be asked on the day by the appropriate Hunt Secretary to pay a full cap; the difference will not be refunded retrospectively

Online payment

After being given your provisional place by MHC secretary, you can pay the appropriate cap online here using a credit card, debit card or PayPal by first clicking the 'button' of the relevant Hunt from the list below. You will then be shown how to pay.

Meynell & South Staffs Hunts reduced-rate bookings

Please pay MHC for your M&SS cap by:
  • entering the reduced cap amount (without a £-sign — e.g. 75.00) in the first box below, and
  • the day and date for which you have requested a place (e.g. 'Tuesday 11th November') in the second box. If you would like the Hunt Secretary to contact you if there are changes to the meet or second horse venues or meet time, please add your mobile phone number (e.g. Tuesday 11th November 07973 123456)
  • entering the provisional booking reference number (e.g. M011612) given you by MHC Secretary into the third box
  • filling in your Countryside Alliance membership number and the name of the Hunt to which you normally subscribe, then
  • clicking the Pay button
You be presented with an invitation to either log in to a PayPal account or (if you wish to pay by credit or debit card) 'Check Out as a Guest'

If you have asked for places for more than one person (for the same Hunt and day), please enter the total amount due: MHC Secretary will know from your original email the names for whom you are booking. But please do not try to pay for more than one day (e.g. "Tuesday 11th November and Saturday 15th November") in one transaction.

You will be presented with confirmation of your payment amount and asked to provide some further information.
When your payment is complete, the system will immediately email you a receipt. This is copied to MHC Secretary and M&SSH Secretary so that the latter will know to expect you. But when you turn up to hunt, please give the Hunt Secretary a copy of the payment receipt.

Please do not make any payment until you have received a provisional place from MHC Secretary.

If you have a confirmed booking but have queries about the meet venue, parking, second horse venue and the like, please contact M&SSH Secretary (via the M&SSH website) and not MHC. And please note that by booking an MHC reduced-rate cap, you are giving permission for MHC to pass on to M&SSH any information you provide when you book.
