We took some country lanes on a back way home and stumbled across an autumn hunt- though, I suppose it’s not called that anymore? No matter the politics, there’s no denying the spectacle of it all. So very English. These are horses and hounds from the Badminton House estate, the Home of the Duke of Beaufort, and are part of the Beaufort Hunt (which can be traced back to the 15th Century, and the lineage of the hounds to the 18th Century). If only he was in hunting pink!
