A staged fox hunt is just one of the events going on this month

The hunting season culminates in this traditional foxhunt where between 40 and 50,000 spectators will follow 90 horse riders in their striking red hunting uniforms as they navigate an obstacle course in Dyrehaven. 

Two experienced riders with fox tails attached to their coats long since replaced the animals in the chase, which gives all involved a chance to showcase their skilled horsemanship before the crowds. 

The winners of the two 800m sprints, one for ponies and the other for horses, are traditionally honoured by Prince Henrik at the Hermitage Hunting Lodge.
