Were you out recently with either the North Ledbury or Surrey Union when the H&H hunting correspondents paid a visit? If so, why not take a look at the gallery below to see if you were spotted by our photographers.

North Ledbury

A friendly and enthusiastic hunt on the Herefordshire and Worcestershire border, the North Ledbury hunts on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The hunt country is approximately 10 miles north to south by eight miles east to west.

The hunt was formed in 1905 with hounds lent by Mr Cambray Forster, who was a master of the neighbouring Ledbury. Other adjoining packs include the North Herefordshire, Clifton-on-Teme and the Croome and West Warwickshire.

Surrey Union

The Surrey Union has been hunting in Surrey since 1798, meeting on Tuesdays and alternate Fridays and Saturdays during the main season.

The country has succumbed to urban sprawl over the years but still covers some 35 miles east to west and 20 miles north to south, with a variety of plough, grassland, set aside and heavy woodland.

Adjoining hunts are the Old Surrey Burstow and West Kent, the Crawley and Horsham and the Chiddingfold, Leconfield and Cowdray.
