Harriers were formed in 1820 and are currently the third
oldest harrier pack in the country. The Harriers traditional,
stud book hounds won shows in both Peterborough and Honiton
in 2008. Simon
Young, the current Master and Huntsman resides at kennels
in Coughton and is helped by whipper-in, Martin Bingham
from Longhope and field master, Anna Ernsting from Whitchurch.
The Harriers active supporters' club is headed by Nick Jenkins
from Llangarron. Ross
Harriers hunt within the law over country stretching from
Michaelchurch in the north, to Kempley in the south and
from Welsh Newton in the west to Woolhope in the east.
11th March 1960, the Ross Harriers, led by Mr. T.B. Johnson
met at Ye Olde Hostelrie in Goodrich and the occasion is
marked by a picture from the Hereford Times which is still
hanging in the pub. Last Thursday, fifty years on from that
meet, they decided to mark that occasion. Present for the
occasion were Mr. Johnson's daughter, Ann, who married Derek
Baly, an ex-chairman of Ross Harriers. Their son, John Baly
is the current chairman.
