Joint-master and huntsman of the South Shropshire Daniel Cherriman on how his new position differs from his previous one at the Pytchley with Woodland
IT was with a tear in my eye that I drove out of the Brixworth kennels, home of the Pytchley with Woodland hounds, for the last time at the end of April. For a decade it was my home and place of work while I was their professional huntsman.
My new role as joint-master and huntsman of the South Shropshire is a very different one, and an exciting new challenge. It is fair to say that Shropshire is a more rural county than Northamptonshire and it has been noticeable while out on my bicycle, getting to know my new hounds, how much quieter the roads are.
The scenery in Shropshire is breathtaking and fills me with joy, as well as anticipation for the coming season.You can also read this exclusive column in the 27 May issue of Horse & Hound magazine.
