Well this month will host the first meets of the ‘New Hunt’ The Essex with Farmers and Union.
The hunt horses are all back at the kennels getting fit for the new season and Josh (our new huntsman) is walking hounds out further and further each day to harden them up for the season ahead.
We held a hound ride from the kennels last Saturday evening and this was attended by over 20 horses and ponies who rode out for 2 hours. There were a few very jaded looking people who had attended Master Andrews wedding on Friday which was a fantastic do that everyone thoroughly enjoyed, but I must admit they looked a lot better after they had consumed some solids in the form of a bbq when they arrived back at kennels after the ride.
The hunt is holding a couple of sponsored rides in the coming weeks (Entries on the day accepted.) Please check out the diary dates page for further details.
So, Brush off your jackets, clean your boots and buy a new alarm clock. The season is about to begin.
