52-1312A Boxing day hunt

THE TRADITIONAL boxing day hunt set off from Lambourn this morning (Monday).

Hosts, the Vine and Craven hunt, provided a colourful spectacle with members wearing red and black 'hunting pinks' .

The party gathered in Lambourn to pass an equally traditional stirrup cup, quaffing a seasonal and warming drink of port - and partake in seasonal refreshments, such as hot sausage rolls and mince pies.

The hunting party then clattered off down Lambourn High Street, to the sounding of the hunting horn and baying of hounds.

    Why all the angry/sad emoticons? It was a drag hunt, not a fox hunt!
