The hunt started at the Steeplechase Course in Medfield, continued on to the Medfield State Hospital, then all the way to Charlescote Farm in Sherborn, and back.
Organizers estimate there were about 46 horses and riders, and about 24 hounds on the hunt. More than 200 people were there to watch the start of the Hunt, despite the cold, windy morning, but with lots of sun.
About the Hunt
The hunt is a drag hunt which means the hounds follow a scent dragged by a human along a predetermined path. Norfolk Hunt has always been a drag hunt, it does not hunt real foxes.
