Money raised to be split between hunt funds and Tiny Lives
On Saturday 1st October 2011 our Joint Master Ian Hedley MFH was 99 years old. A Birthday Meet was held at Ian’s home Overacres, Otterburn to mark this special occassion.
Championship and Winner of the Bellingham Horn was Wishful from the College Valley and North Northumberland Hunt. Hound Judge Gordon Martin from the Blencathara Hounds.
We thoroughly enjoyed the West Woodburn ride on Sunday and, if you can, please thank the 3 lads again that tried with their van and JCB to sort out our broken down wagon. One of them lay underneath the wagon testing this and that but the battery was fine so we were at a loss as to what was wrong and started to think we might have to call on a friend who had already been and gone from the ride to come and rescue us. Then, after being towed by the JCB and successfully bump started we did get home alright. It was really kind of the lads to help us out and very much appreciated.
There was a really good atmosphere to the whole day and it was very well organised, even down to the provision of water and fly spray for our neddies.
Hope to take part in another Border Hunt event soon!
£300 from the profits made from a hunt bar at a local wedding was donated to the Great North Air Ambulance Service.The Border Hunt selects a charity each year to support, and the Air Ambulance provides an essential service in Northumberland, supported purely by donations
Hunting up the Coquet.
Must say what a brilliant morning’s hunting we’ve had today with the Border! One of the best ever till visibility turned to zero.

I had my first day out on foot with the Border Hunt last weekend and had a thoroughly fantastic afternoon!
From the meet at the Bay Horse to the end of my day at around 2pm I felt welcomed and the whole experience was better than I had anticipated. With the guidance of one of your supporters I was able to have a great day out. The hounds were amazing to watch and to listen to and it was super trying to keep up with them, following them up, down and around.
I especially enjoyed getting a lift on the back of Cameron’s quad and had an ‘interesting’ experience on Susan Scotts buggy!
I hope that New Years day will not be my only day out with you and the Border this year.
