    Default Boxing Day Meet Photos...

    I had a fantastic day, plenty of jumping and galloping and very little standing around, which suited my horse down to the ground! I managed to get my Father to come follow us out, so here are a few photos of Ali and I... Bare in mind he isn't the world's best photographer!

    Please no comments on the fact that Ali isn't 100% spotlessly clean... I was in a rush yesterday evening to groom and plait him up.

    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:

    And a close up of the original photo of Ali and I jumping over the brush type fence...

    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...

    Thanks for sharing...My daughter was not well today so we missed our meet.

    The guy in his jeans with is cig/fag is too funny. I just sent a note to another mother whose daughter is coming out w/us in January about good and proper turn out!

    Do you have more "action" shots? If so---post them, please!

    LOL! Unfortunately my Father isn't a great photographer so all the other photos of me jumping are taken waaay too early or far too late after the jump

    Great pics. Makes me wish I'd taken Rue out now!

    I don't envy you keeping him clean- four white legs are bad enough! Thank God my grey is retired now.

    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.
