We couldn't have wished for a better weather. Many, many thanks to Pauline, Nic and Exmoor Foxhounds for an unforgettable experience and one amazing day. I will let the photos tell the story. Above: moment of rest. Beautiful countryside. The hills are out of this world and as Nic said about the horses who hunt there "there is fit and there is Exmoor fit", I wouldn't even attempt to hunt a semi-fit horse there. You need buckets of stamina and muscle power there. And pair of good knees yourself as there is a lot of jerky descents...
6.55am. View from my bed. Sheep, an arena and the hills we are to gallop up later - a dream team :)
8.30 ish. Felix - my absolutamazing partner for the day. Groomed and ready to go. He is barefoot. The best horse I have ever taken over some serious terrain.
Helping to groom the rest of the horses.
First horses arrive...Exciting!
Pauline, Whiskey and Port ;)
More people and horses arrive at Rockley Farm
And the HOUNDS! They are rather impressive :)
And off we go...
Pauline and Angel returning at the end of the day.
Amazing Felix and I at the end of the day
Fabulous memories and unforgettable experience. Thank you once again to Pauline and Nic for making it possible :)
