Leading equestrian sports photographer Trevor Meeks has been photographing foxhunting for Horse & Hound magazine for nearly two decades, but for more than a million people in this country hunting is much more than a sport, it's a way of life, and it is this passionate commitment to the countryside, the horses and the hounds that Meeks captures so evocatively in his stunning photographs. With Kate Green's kwledgeable commentary running throughout, this beautiful album encapsulates the spirit of foxhunting and provides a unique chronicle of a beloved pastime for those impassioned supporters whose communities have been torn apart by the ban.
