Opening Meet

Ashford Valley Tickham Huntsman Neil Staines blows the horn as hounds move off signifying the start of the new season.

The opening meet was well attended by a large field of mounted and foot-followers. The mounted field was divided into ‘jumping’ and non-jumping fields to cater for all abilities of riding ensuring a good day for all. Those on foot lined the hedgerows to watch hounds at work and the antics of the riders as they negotiated the various types of jumps. There were some new members for the ‘Fallers Club’! Hounds worked hard following the trails that had been laid throughout the day and singing their delight at finding them giving  much pleasure to their audience.

Many attended the meet on foot.

The Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt would like to thank the Farmers and Landowner for allowing us to hunt on their land.

Birchalls the Riding Shop is a family run business originally established in 1897 by James Birchall. Some of our customers may remember the shop in Bank Street, which specialised in tailor made clothing for hunting. In 1980 Birchalls moved out of town into a new location in the Sutton Road. With more space the saddlery and leisure riding side of the business was increased. In 2000, with horse riding becoming more popular as a leisure activity, Birchalls made a final move to Pleasant View Garden Centre in Chart Sutton. Once again the much larger premises enabled the shop to expand all areas of the business.
