Mid Devon Hunt Visit March 2014

Thank you to all those who made the effort to come and see our hounds on Dartmoor. Due to the threat of a large anti presence, enhanced by the arrival of a riot van and a lot of very nice police liaison officers, we headed straight for the moor, meaning that we were out of view of our foot followers. Poor Geoff Robins and Harry Arnold followed fruitlessly and never saw a hound for the day! Hopefully the fantastic meal in the Union made up for this. They are two of the most loyal followers of these hounds.

 

After a twenty five minute trail, hounds settled into their new terrain.  Then, Postbridge provided a wonderfully laid trail which was expertly laid over a ten mile route, scoring a 51/2 mile point. All of this was on the moor and I am sure that those who saw it will remember it for a long time.

 

Huge thanks goes to George Lyon-Smith and his team at the Mid Devon for such a wonderful welcome and hospitality. When we next repair a damaged fence in Cattistock country, I shall remember the two hour round trip George made on Sunday morning on the quad bike to the high moor to repair a wall that we damaged!

 

Dartmoor is truly a last bastion of wilderness. It took the quads and the hounds two hours to get to the lorry at Postbridge from the peaty valleys under Fir Tor. What a privilege it was to take our hounds there and they loved it!
