Fox Hunting at Milton Hall in Peterborough

The opening day of the Fitzwilliam Fox Hunt was held at Milton Hall and Milton Park just outside Peterborough. There were about a hundred or so spectators that showed up to watch the spectacle of horses and hounds, huntsmen and eagle.

This was my third year watching what has become one of my all-time favorite events to witness. I know there are a lot of anti fox hunt people and protesters out there, but to be honest, I really don’t give much of a shit. If you have not seen a bunch of Brits dressed to the nines on horseback with a pack of bellowing hounds in tow and a guy dressed head to toe in the most British of tweed suits who has a flippin eagle on his arm… well then my friend, you haven’t lived.
