I am not sure if I am delusional, but I seem to recall reading about a Pathfinder version of The Wild Hunt. It wasn't explicitly called that, but something else, so I haven't been able to find it by brute searching. Has there been any write up of that anywhere? In a bestiary? In a Pathfinder Adventure Path?

Or am I confusing it in my memory with the headless horseman.

There's no Wild Hunt in the PFSRD

Theoretically all of Pathfinder's content is Open Gaming content, which means that if it's not in the PFSRD, it's not in the game at all. There might be something for you in a sourcebook somewhere, but I doubt it.

You Might be Thinking 3.5

Monster Manual V published The Wild Hunt as a creature, though in terms of being accurate to the myth or a level-appropriate challenge he's a little sad. Still, that may be where you remember it from and porting it to Pathfinder would be easy enough.

All of the Pathfinder rules are Open Gaming content, but the world setting is not. The PFSRD is also only the unofficial index of the non-setting specific information, and also includes lots of third party stuff. – Bobson Jan 27 '14 at 4:24
That being said, I think that the answer itself is right - I don't know of anything like the Wild Hunt in the Golarian setting. – Bobson Jan 27 '14 at 4:28
Is there anything you could add about the Headless Horseman, since the OP mentioned it? – BESW Jan 27 '14 at 6:55
I'm not terribly familiar with him. He's not similar to the legends of the Wild Hunt, nor is he particularly fey. I'm not sure how the two would get conflated. – Lord_Gareth Jan 27 '14 at 7:00
The reason I can get them confused is that both are things of legend that stalk people at night. In Pathfinder they called the headless horseman a dullahan, a name that was not "headless horseman". So it got into my head that I couldn't just look up the name in an index and expect to find it. Maybe that was why I couldn't find the Wild Hunt. – Erik Allen Jan 27 '14 at 17:45
