TOABH: Wish We Could


Let's pretend that financial restrictions don't exist and logistics isn't a nightmare.  If you could do anything with your Ponykins, what would you do?

FOX HUNT!


I don't know that he's well suited for it mentally, but I would kill to take Archie fox hunting. Given that he excels at running (fortunately, not on a track), I think he'd love to be in a pack and galloping off after the hounds. 

For those who haven't had the pleasure of riding out first flight, here's an amazing video (with questionable footing, I'll say it) of a hunt in the UK.  I've never done anything quite like that!

  2. My Kika went hunting in Ireland, with other riders not me. I have never been a fan of the thought of chasing down and killing a defenceless terrified animal. I understand why it is done, and let my horse go for the amazing education and grounding it gives equines - but couldn't partake myself. Double standards maybe...but they are all mine!

    1. Then you need to come hunt in America! I've never heard of a hunt killing a fox or a coyote. Often, we'll just do drags and lay a path with fox pee. Tamer and nothing gets hurts.

  4. I would love to fox hunt!!! I saw that video on Facebook and absolutely loved it! After watching it I'm kind of terrified to try it though hehe. If I ever did it I'd have to do one with teeny tiny jumps hehe. I can't wait to do this post. Going to be so much fun. Great blog hop!!

  6. yea i would really love to fox hunt - and i think isabel would be pretty good at it, except for the whole mud thing... i actually asked my trainer about it once and she doubted that isabel would risk separating from the herd just bc of some mud... food for thought!

  7. I foxhunted for 4 or 5 years, first flight. And I will say this- nothing beats the thrill of foxhunting on a good horse, galloping along with your friends across the countryside is just thrilling, and a helluva good time.

    However, foxhunting on an unsuited horse is potentially one of the most miserable things ever to be experienced.

    Ask me how I know :)
