Were you out recently at the Pytchley’s “grey horses only day” or with the Bicester Hunt with Whaddon Chase when the H&H hunting correspondents paid a visit? If so, why not take a look at the pictures below to see if you were spotted by our photographers.
With only those on grey horses able to ride at this special meet, 72 different shades of grey horses — which were either owned or borrowed especially for the occasion — attended this spectacle that raised money for the local air ambulance.

Bicester Hunt with Whaddon Chase
The hunt was formed as an amalgamation of the Bicester & Warden Hill and the Whaddon Chase in 1986. Their country lies in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire, with their kennels in Stratton Audley, near Bicester. Patrick Martin, who has hunted these hounds since 1992, retires at the end of the season so H&H correspondent Will Cursham spent the day of our visit “on the tail of Patrick Martin”.
