Hubertus Hunt, Copenhagen

Every November, Copenhagen’s Dyrehaven park is the setting for a wild ride, involving lots of thrills and spills. The Hubertus Hunt is a Danish horse riding tradition, involving roughly 160 riders and around 40,000 spectators.

Taking place in the park’s normally calm surroundings, the event sees horses and their riders navigating a range of obstacles along a 13-kilometre course, including hedges, ditches and even the notorious ‘black pond’.

The ride is a throwback to traditional royal hunting events, but nowadays, no foxes or other animals are pursued. Instead, two hunters wearing ‘fox tails’ ride ahead, setting the pace for the rest of the pack.

The Hubertus Hunt is a beloved tradition and has been taking place every year since 1900 – with a few exceptions during the World Wars. It’s a great day out, with many people choosing to bring a picnic and spend the day in the green and pleasant park.

This heart-pounding (and hoof pounding) spectacle is definitely one to see if you’re going to be in Copenhagen this autumn.
