||The history of the Hounds can be traced back to the early XX century both in the Teba and Maura families. In 2005 don Jaime Pati�o, then conde del Arco, and heir to the conde de Teba and don Ramiro Perez-Maura, duque de Maura, founded and legally chartered the �Club de Lanceo Espanol� that started to hunt boars on horseback in the traditional �lanceo� style, that is, with none o just a few hounds on the open marshes, farmland ans scrubland of Castille and Andalousia. The pack of hounds is now days of a total of 20 working �poitevins�, the number that is considered a �rehala� in Spain. The Teba family had a beagles pack of hounds in Ventosilla brought by the duque de Santo�a in the early XX. The Teba family are recognized as the most keen hunters in the past centuries, only surpassed but not compared with the royal family. The countess of Teba, empress Eugenia of France hunted wild boar in Do�ana , while owned by the duques de Medina Sidonia, in the XIX century, in one the most lavishly organized �lanceos� in the story of that property, now considered the most important National Park in Spain, though still privately owned. The last Conde de Teba was considered the number one shot in the country. Gabriela Maura, duquesa de Maura hunted on horseback in the early XX in France and won various showjumping contests riding side saddle. She was considered the number one women shot in the driven partridge world that had a enourmous social importance in the XX century. Her sister Carmen Maura, duquesa de Medina Sidonia loved to hunt the boars in her property besides �El monte de El Pardo�, the kings most important hunting grounds and their home for centuries and today. She produced some nice literature on the subject. Today, the headquarters of Club de Lanceo Espa�ol are based in the building that used to belong to the duquesa de Medina Sidonia, the family that also owned �Do�ana� for more than three hundred years. The CLE hounds kennels are also there, in Pendolero.
