The hunts themselves generally have a number of different routes that can be taken by those involved to cater for a wider range of ability level such as routes with jumps involved and then those that take a longer time but use gates as an alternative. Hunts vary from country to country around the sort of animals that can be hunted legally and the sport of horseback hunting is at the centre on controversy. As with any sport involving horses, the risk of accident arising is high as the speed and uncertainty of full control creates a risky activity. Ensuring that you have taken out personal cover before jumping on a horse is therefore recommended to provide cover against accidents or injuries that may occur.
