Hunting with hounds in Compiègne embodies a centuries-old tradition, combining the elegance of horseback hunting with the majesty of the surrounding forest. This practice, steeped in history and customs, celebrates the alliance between man, horses and dogs in the pursuit of game through the wooded expanses of the region.

At the heart of this hunt are the stakers, dressed in the crew's colours, true guides in the heart of nature. They play an essential role in managing dog packs and tracking game. The stakers guide the pack through the winding paths of the forest, using their know-how to anticipate the movements of the game.

The dogs, the real players in this hunt, are hounds and bloodhounds, trained to track game with discipline. Their barks echo through the forest, creating a symphony of sound that links them to the sound of their masters' trumpets and horns.

However, hunting with hounds also sparks debate, with divergent voices regarding the ethics of the practice.

Some consider it an invaluable tradition, while others highlight animal welfare concerns.

Despite these controversies, hunting with hounds in Compiègne remains an immutable tradition, a cultural heritage that endures through the generations.
