Master of the hunt Charlie Bucknall greeted the crowd and the hounds were kept in check at the Barbican by huntsman Robert McCarthy riding Mabel and Whipper-In Robert Truscott riding Let’s Go Romeo, who has previously raced at Cheltenham.

Percy Specials - a mix of whisky and cherry liqueur, helped keep people in warm spirits. The meet was hosted by the newly-reformed Friends Of The Percy Hunt.
