Caza Ladrón, based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, celebrates its 20th season this year. Founder Guy McElvain began foxhunting in New Mexico in the 1970s with his parents, who introduced the sport in New Mexico over 50 years ago. Today Masters McEvain, Brian Gonzales and Richard Patton keep the tradition alive and vibrant. The pack of Crossbred, English and American hounds is now based at HIPICO Santa Fe, a multipurpose horse facility near Santa Fe.

The legacy of fine sport in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains will be officially celebrated February 15-17, 2019 when Caza Ladrón hosts a joint meet commemorating its 20th season. With fixtures rolling for miles under blue skies, snow-covered mountains for backdrop, we routinely enjoy excitement and adventure any foxhunter would cherish.

We welcome foxhunters to our hometown of Santa Fe - a genuine travel destination in its own right, Santa Fe offers historical charm, culture, art galleries, superb skiing and endless fine dining. Plenty of stabling available although all livery horses are currently spoken for. The weekend includes two days of hunting, a trail ride, cocktail party and hunt ball, as well as two of Caza Ladrón’s famous hunt breakfasts. Silent auction donations welcome. Contact the secretary, Phyllis Gonzales, at phyllis@hipicosantafe.com for details about the weekend or to donate to the auction.
