with Horse and Hound

Calls on the Horn

horncallsWhen you hear your huntsman's horn, do you know what he's telling his hounds, his staff, and you as a member of the field? In this FHL video presentation, huntsman John Tabachka blows eight calls on his hunting horn—moving off, doubling, heel, gone away, gone to ground, calling the whipper-in, the kill, and going home—and explains why and when during the course of a hunt these calls are used.

John Tabachka is huntsman for the Deep Run Hunt (VA) and a two-time winner of the National Horn Blowing Championship held at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg.
