Once hunting is finished we are all inclined to think the hunt staff can have a well earned rest for the next few months. Ha Ha this is not the case. With Robert still not back to full capacity there is much to be done at the kennels with pups to send out to walkers, several shows organised where horses and hounds will be parading. horses, puppy show preparations etc. Its not always easy to catch the horses who think it is their summer holidays and they should not be disturbed and the hot weather dry weather is not always liked by the hounds.
Come and watch them parade a the Essex Young Farmers Show and Rally on Saturday 20th May. Its always a great day out so come and find us at the show. Hounds will be parading at least 3 times during the day. Unfortunately Robert will still be on foot but Matthew and Will will parade the hounds for him and he will be there to answer questions etc. The Hunt Supporters will be there with a new range of merchandise. Some great and practical fleeces etc Come and see us.
Thanks to our new Professional Whip Matthew Biddlescombe and hunt Groom Laura Whysall we are well on track for the puppy show and Robert has been teaching the young entry show skills so they don’t disgrace themselves on the day and helping with the painting and decorating to keep everywhere fresh and clean. Come and enjoy the day.
