Arrive at the Meet on time. Greet the Master of Foxhounds with a "Good morning." Seek out the Hon. Secretary and pay him the cap (fee), unless you are a subscriber. Check your saddle girth—it may have loosened while hacking over to the Meet.
When hounds move off to covert do not seek a place near the head of the column of twos. It is more proper for senior members to take that position. When in woodland and the horses in front of you slow up or stop, hold up your whip hand to signal and warn those behind you. If a hound is trying to come forward from in rear of the field sing out " 'Ware hound" to prevent a horse from stepping on and injuring it.
If you are about to be passed by Huntsman and the pack in a lane, pull out to your near side and turn your horse to face hounds. It is then less likely your horse will step on one.
Don't ever ride ahead of the Master. When hounds are working nearby do not move about or talk audibly. You are expected to hold back for an interval which the Master will set. Don't ride close to a horse with a red ribbon tied in his tail. He kicks.
Don't hold on to a tree branch and then let it slap back into the face of the rider behind you.
Never leave a fellow hunter in trouble.
