Whatever you think of foxhunting, it is very much a traditional English countryside sport. This meeting of The Pytchley Hunt took place on boxing day 2002 at Hardingstone in Northamptonshire.The tradional red coated members of the hunt have frequently been the subject of paintings and at one time there were few English pubs that didn't have at least one picture of the hunt hanging on their walls.The Master of the Hunt with his pack of hounds was the centre of attention.

The Master of the Hunt with his pack of hounds was the centre of attention.The foxhounds are kennelled and trained specially for hunting.Several hundred people gathered at Harlstone Firs outside Northampton to watch the hunt gather.

The hunt is very much a social occassion as well as an opportunity to put the horses through their paces.Eventually it was time for the off. The hounds were keen to be on their way.People who witnessed the start of the hunt were aware that this might be one of the last times this sight may be seen, with possible changes in laws governing foxhunting looming.

Judging by the sad expression of the face of this hound, it was difficult not to believe that the dogs were well aware of the possible changes and what it might mean for them.
