Boxing Day 2018

A change to tradition, a phrase you will rarely read on a hunting blog but this year the Meet was at kennels before the parade along Elham High Street.
An excellent crowd gathered at the meet, some 400 - 500  managed the track up Cullens Hill despite its gradient and other hazards. According to a non-hunting friend there were another 200+ waiting for the parade along the High Street.
For the mounted field the calmer atmosphere at kennels was a boon with almost all of the 50+ mounted gathering at kennels whereas in previous years those on young or nervous horses had not wanted to risk an appearance in the Square where the huge cheers of support could even spook those of us on foot.


These and many more may be viewed HERE.

Half way through the gathering.
