Were you out recently with either the Hursley Hambledon or Carmarthenshire packs when the H&H hunting correspondents paid a visit? If so, why not take a look at the galleries below to see if you were spotted by our photographers.

Hursley Hambledon

Our correspondent visited on a frosty morning however after a delayed meet time, conditions had eased and those who braved the elements were able to enjoy the sport provided. The hunt, whose kennels are in Droxford in Hampshire, was formed as an amalgamation of the Hursley Hunt with the Hambledon Hunt in 1978.
