Ali and I going over a small brush type fence with a pole above it. A lot of horses refused here as there was a large crowd of people the other side, but Ali went over it with no problems... Excuse my AWFUL position over it, don't ask what I was doing as I'm not too sure myself :crazy:
Also, the badly dressed people are NOT regulars with my pack, they're from a neighbouring pack. They only came out with us today as their Boxing Day meet isn't particularly great... It's just a "once off" every year, if people were turning up dressed as badly as that regularly then our hunt staff would certainly have a word with them...
Gosh, for December your gray horse looks perfectly clean, good job! Thanks for sharing the pictures. I had a solid white gelding once and for fun one March day along his muddy side I took a wet finger and wrote "WASH ME" on him. It's a great photo.
One question, why is it often hunts your area, and others GB, start in small towns/villiages??? It seems so traditional to see an oversea's hunt hacking by shoppes on paved roads while over here most all hunting fixtures originate from farms/stables on rural, often even unpaved, roads.
We didn't hunt yesterday, it was today, and I should have gone. Snow late this afternoon with more promised tomorrow night means I won't haul out for Saturdays hunt 12 miles from me. Those unpaved, hilly, rural roads I reference above will remain untreated making travel w/ a horse trailer foolish.
Castlemouse, those pictures were wonderful. Looks like all had a great time. Thanks for sharing them, I just love looking at everyones pictures, now if I could only figure out how to use my camera like that... LOL
