Subject: RE: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
Laura, I didn't observe anyone particularly incensed with people on horseback on this thread. As one who owns horses and who has racked up hundreds and hundreds of miles on horseback, I think I would have picked up on any overt prejudice.

However, regarding hunts using just dogs and feet, from my experience, as noted above, it does provide a particularly visceral view of a terrified animal being torn apart, as well as a providing a greater opportunity to be splattered with blood and gore, that one may not have the pleasure of experiencing from a higher vantage point.
