High style in Leicestershire
The sun shines on the Quorn’s opening meet at Kirby Bellars
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.
