31. Fort Leavenworth Hunt Club

Formed in 1926, members of the Fort Leavenworth Hunt Club pursued foxes and coyotes while on horseback and with the help of foxhounds. The club is still active today and is a chase only activity. It is a great opportunity for both military and civilians to get out and ride at Fort Leavenworth and parts of the Flint Hills.
