Boxing Day 2015 had a new experience for Debbie, Mum and myself when we walked into Abergavenny town centre to find much to our surprise the annual Monmouthshire Hunt gathering.
Since the outlawing of fox hunting this is now a drag sport, but I have to say it was quite an impressive sight, with local hotel staff bringing out mulled wine and cakes for the riders, many of whom were young children on their ponies.
It rather reminded me of one of our family’s favourite Disney films, Mary Poppins!
Many of the horses started “unloading” copiously onto the road, so I hastily steered the two Mrs Shores’ for a refreshing Costa coffee before heading back home. 🙂
