Christmas message from Horse & Hound’s Editor

  • Dear Readers,

    A short Christmas offering from the Editor — in verse!

    Wishing you a very happy Christmas,

    Lucy Higginson

    A Christmas toast from Horse & Hound

    This winter’s left us stranded
    Short of fun with hound and horse
    And to be completely candid
    Our Christmas smiles may look forced

    But though the work’s outweighed the pleasure
    For the past few weeks at least
    Let’s take a broader measure
    As we all sit down to feast

    And as we toast the Christmas season
    Over puds and brandy sauce
    Let’s remember one more reason
    We’d hate to be without the horse

    Tomorrow we will see him
    At meets throughout the land
    Snorting, fresh, coat gleaming,
    Mane plaited, looking grand

    And can anyone in England name a better sight
    Than a crowd, a pack, a huntsman, and a hunter’s eye so bright?
