Foxhunting in its traditional form is now banned in England, but for generations it was the passion of British Gentry. A full-dress foxhunt, with all its pantry and ritual, was an arresting sight: dozens of hunters and horses, huge packs of hounds, and tensal fox terriers, all roaring into the vast, rolling estates of the rich. The terriers moved into the saddle and were released when the fox went underground. After the fox has driven the fox away, the horse and the hound will start chasing.
