For most people, the vacation of a lifetime would take place somewhere warm; perhaps with a sandy beach, turquoise waters and palm trees. For me, my vacation of a lifetime took place in an area known for its cold, wet seasons and muddy fields. Instead of a comfortable lounging chair by the water, I was on the back of a horse. And instead of swimming with dolphins or touring the local attractions, I was galloping behind a pack of foxhounds. All of this because instead of Bali or Mexico or the Caribbean, where most "normal" people choose to spend their vacation, I was in England, riding with distinguished hunts such as the Bicester with Whaddon Chase, the Vale of the White Horse, and the Ledbury.
