    Nobody here takes a blind bit of notice of bridles on the hunt field! I guess anything with even a bit of "bling"catches my eye, but nobody else would care in the slightest.

    Sparky Boy - those plaits (braids) are the stock standard style of plaiting manes here in New Zealand. Anything else is considered "different". =)

    My partner is huntsman here, and once hunting starts, our horses only get ridden twice a week - on hunt days. So long as they are fit to start with, that is easily enough to keep them that way. :)

    Whilst hunting in Australia the (female) master and I both "needed to go" and since not much was happening with hounds at that moment, we moved aside into a bit of brush and down-trousered. Whilst...

    In Ireland, many female Masters wear blue coats instead of scarlet. :)

    Here shaped saddle blankets are almost unheard of in the hunt field. Most hunts have their own saddle blankets which you can buy, and they are all square, with a large pocket and the hunt logo on it.

    All very well for you lot! :winkgrin: Our hunters' shoes have just been pulled off and they and our hounds are on holiday til November. I'll have to do my summer hunting through you. :)

    Wow Rockbridge - that's stooping low. A poor attempt at retaliation. Thankfully you've been caught out.

    I had to laugh at my partners reply to someone who asked him what he does during the off-season (he's a huntsman, and Irish ;) ). Without a moment's hesitation he said "oh I'll just take the...

    A friend of ours hunts a pack in Virginia and he's almost beside himself with no hunting! Hard to sympathize with him though, having never ridden in snow in my life. In fact I've only ever been to...

    Not sure of the exact reason he was struck off, but I know that in the past I've had odd pm's from that guy. Couldn't help wondering if he had maybe been bothering others as well. In which case, no...

    I hunted for a month in Ireland, with several different hunts, and never once saw a plaited horse! Including the huntsman's horse. North Tipperary and Ormond mainly.
