During the fall and winter months, the Red Rock Hounds hunt club gathers at the facility and rides out in pursuit of coyotes in the beautiful Nevada desert. To ride to the hounds is breathtaking, and the chase ends once the coyote outsmarts the hounds. Visitors are welcome and experienced hunt horses are always available for leasing on a daily basis.
Lynn has been supported by four Joint Masters of Foxhounds – Scott Tepper (1986 - ), Gayle Horn (2002 - 2011), John Schafer (2007-) and most recently, Angela Murray (2012 - ). The Joint Masters share the burden of managing the hunt organization, ensuring good relationships with landowners and government officials who oversee our hunt territory, and most importantly, guiding the development of our pack of hounds.
Over the past 33 years, the Red Rock Hounds has developed a prominent reputation through the efforts of the hunt’s masters and members to open the public’s eyes to the joy of fox hunting Nevada style. Every three years we enjoy international attendance at the Pacific District meet which is hosted by our hunt.
We actively engage in public appearances of hunt members and hounds to promote our sport and to educate the public about fox hunting is in the 21st century. Our hounds have been honored to participate in many events over the past 3 decades, including the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, California, multiple events at the Reno Livestock Event Center, DG Bar Dressage Shows in Hanford, California, the Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby, the Horse Expo in Sacramento and numerous parades and events throughout the greater Reno area. Our hounds have been featured in National Geographic, Practical Horseman, Chronicle of the Horse, The London Sunday Times, Covertside and Spur Magazine. There have been several TV documentaries made about Red Rock Hounds.
We welcome any opportunity to introduce our marvelous hounds to the public!

RRH Foundation in the Fall of 2014.
To establish ourselves as a community resource for people to interact with nature, animals, and the outdoors.

I finally got to ride Bugaboo and Santina - they are both fun, smooth, exactly what you told us. Our trainer has been really impressed with the boys also - she thinks they are perfect for what we need, Bugs has a great foundation and great mind, and Santina is perfect for what Simon needs! Thanks again for fixing us up, and the hospitality!!
