    Default Melton Hunt Club Ride 2012

    It's kind of slow in ye old hunt forum so I thought I'd post a video that's pretty exciting. Melton Hunt Club as far as I can make out is near Nottingham (Sherwood Forest?) in England.

    This fabulous ride takes place near Melton
    mowbray in Leicestershire.

    The cream of the Shires Hunts compete in this ride.Which is organised by The Melton Hunt Club.

    The location is at Waltham on the Wolds,just outside of Melton Mobray.

    Thanks! Just what I needed!

    (It's a depressing day on the H/J and eventing forums).

    What a ride! Great idea, the helmet-cam...

    So, about 100 miles southeast of Sherwood Forest (which, I just checked, is only a 1045 acre remnant of what used to be a huge forest).

    There is something about this headcam -- I never felt more as if I were in the action. I kept trying to use the reins.

    Lovely galloping country. I've only read about it and seen it per video, never in person. What fun it would be to ride there.
    Of course, I would be cantering instead of galloping full tilt, but still, it looks like wonderful riding!

    Funny , I was trying to achieve sleep last night by re-reading Apperley's "Life of a Sportsman" in which Melton Mowbray is the holiest of holies... I love my old hunting books, but Nimrod is capable of sending me off to sleep...
