Horse & Hound - - Hunting - H&H

A LARGE field turned out at the hunt ken­nels at Kirby Bel­lars for hunts­man Peter Collins’ fi­nal Quorn open­ing meet. He has hunted these hounds since 2002 and has en­joyed a long and dis­tin­guished ca­reer in hunt ser­vice. The usual size­able side-sad­dle con­tin­gent, headed by Emma Brown, pro­vided style and el­e­gance, while Nicky Han­bury pro­vided an ex­cel­lent lead as field master.
