Turkey Trotters Hunt.
A large crowd of intrepid hunting enthusiasts turned out for the annual Turkey Trotters Hunt in Ruan on New Year’s Day.  The last of the heavy showers had just fallen as  the horses were leaving the village, and they spent the next few hours going through the fields around the area, having plenty of jumps on the way.
It was an envigorating and enjoyable afternoon for all who took part.
