  • Description

    Full title reads: "Clouds, Wiltshire. The Children's Meet. Budding Dianas and Nimrods learn true principles of the 'grand old sport' and the joy of the chase."

    Clouds, Wiltshire.

    An adult fox hunter riders into view with a pack of fox hounds. A number of boys and girls are there, either mounted on their horses or watching from the ground.

    Three children enjoy a cup of tea before the hunt - in place of the usually alcoholic beverage.

    More shots of the mounted children sitting on their ponies as the dogs mill around. A hunts woman issues a few instructions and then everyone gives a cheer.

    The hunt moves off - both adults and children - along the road following the hounds.
