The funeral of a man injured out hunting with the Cotley Harriers was held this week.

Anthony Osborne, from Hawkchurch, near Marshwood, Devon, was out with the Cotley at a joint meet with the Axe Vale on 2 March when his horse slipped and fell on him.

The 66-year-old retired solicitor and father of three was taken to hospital with serious internal injuries, but later died.

Cotley secretary Edmund Bailhache told H&H: “Anthony was a loyal and regular supporter over many years and will be sadly missed.”

Mr Osborne’s funeral took place on 22 March in Hawkchurch.
