Is there a chap building an Ark?

The fact that we have been able to go at all is a testament to the gracious spirit of our landowners, farmers and keepers. The ground is more than waterlogged - in places there is no ground to be seen.

In such conditions it was no surprise that these "Meets" consisted of a beach ride (very many thanks to "J MFH for organising this) and a short day of hound exercise.

Nonetheless a very good-spirited group met to enjoy the hospitality of our Masters and the consideration of our landowners on Saturday before enjoying a jolly hack across some beautiful country.

What a lucky lot we are

With the ground waterlogged the generosity and support of our landowners and farmers is beyond belief. To you all a huge thank you. On the theme of generosity: what a feast our hosts provided - grateful thanks to you as well.

Well fed and watered the mounted field set off in the best of spirits for a super day.

Quite why did the chairman return to the meet calling out "Any old iron"?

Welcoming 2018

What a show! Well done to Hannah's Bar and Bistro, many thanks to H and to J and her day. A day which was not auspicious in terms of the weather but offered a welcome to all from the village and those good folk, together with the regulars, made for a very jolly Meet.

The weather would have put many off the idea of mooching around on a horse to say nothing of the footies but spirits were high and the Meet a great success - very many thanks.

The Master of the day together with her team had provided two series of jumps for the ladies and gentlemen on horseback - what terrific folk.

Who, after their appearance at the Boxing Day Meet, was greeted as "your Lordship"?


These and many more may be viewed HERE - but pleased be advised that there was so little light that images are grainy and will not make for good prints much beyond 7x5.
