There are two sites where our hunt photographs are now posted. The links are listed below and both allow free download of images. We hope you enjoy them and kindly ask for a £5 honour donation to the hunt which you can give to Charlie MacEwan or Gigi Richardson at any meet.

He still has a few slow roast joints left for Xmas but just as importantly is now taking orders for early next year. Whether you like steak, ribs, topside, mince or slow roasting joints it's always worth making Matt your first port of call.

The Cattistock Hunt Supporters Club Show
A fun, sunny day was had at the Show on Sunday 3rd August. The first few classes were at bit short of competitors but as the day went on the classes filled. Sheila Meaden started the day with a turn out class which varied from a showy pony to a shire horse all looking immaculate. Tracy Roberts finished the day judging the Hunter classes. It was a delight to see some Hunters out Show jumping, Charlie MacEwan with Charm and Caroline Meier with Lottie both got placed.
The Hunter classes were all good hunting types with 13hh & under class being won by Emily Weeks on the most lovely Dartmoor, Floss, who also went on to win the Championships, receiving the enormous trophy first presented at the Point to Point at North Perrott in 1932.
The under 15hh class was won by Jess Wareham on Archie, winning the CHSC Challenge Trophy. The Ridden Hunter class was won by a relative newcomer to Hunting, Boris, ridden by Lucy Greenwood, winning the CHSC Perpetual Trophy, originally presented by Major James Pinney. The Open WH class was won by Sophie Fowler on Emma Fishers` Nettle, winning the beautiful Ann Galloway Trophy.
Bright coloured spotty rosettes were plentiful, as were prizes, including photography vouchers thanks to Ian Lenton and Mike Weeks, please see this link to see photos. http://www.dorsetphotoevent.co.uk/gallery/
