The Easton Harriers hunt is holding a Ladies’ Day on 28 February to encourage Suffolk women who have never hunted before to try the sport.

Joint-master Lydia Freeman will hunt a bitch pack, while male members of the hunt will lend “sane” horses for newcomers.

Secretary Jayne Ackland-Snow said: “We will have a full English breakfast with champagne and a proper hunt tea afterwards.

It promises to be a spectacular day — something a bit different and fun.”

Cap is £60 to hunt, £10 for breakfast only.
