Rules to play Fox Hunting
Once formal season begins, more distinctions apply based on the members gender and whether or not he or she has been awarded colors. There are, however, four elements of proper turnout that are universalheadwear, neckwear, gloves, and vestsand we will consider these first.
Headwear All members of the field should wear a hunt style helmet which is defined as a brimmed cap with a black velvet covering. Safety harnesses are recommended and, if the helmet is so equipped, the harness should be kept latched at all times during the hunt. Ribbons at the back of the helmet should point up. Masters and professional staff signify their positions by turning the ribbons to point down. Top hats and bowlers are proper under certain conditions as will be noted below. Modern dress Approved safety helmets are allowed.
