This Is Hunting UK is celebrating the holidays with international cheer via social media.
Every festive season, TiHUK appeals for photographs and footage of holiday meets for its Facebook and Instagram pages – but the net has been widened this year to include material from hunts all over the world.
“This is Hunting UK is joining forces with hunts across the world to stand up for hunting and what it means to our communities,” says a spokesman for This Is Hunting UK. “We are keen that people attend their local holiday meets to see the spectacle of hounds and horses – and are keen to encourage those attending to find out more. These meets are naturally the best attended of the year with family and friends meeting up for the occasion. So please come along and see for yourselves.”
Hunts from the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, France, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany have already been approached to support the initiative with responses of great acclaim. The initiative aims to demonstrate their support for hunting in the United Kingdom while displaying great unity in the hunting community worldwide.
“We are delighted to receive the support of our international friends,” says the spokesman. “[We] look forward to their images which will reflect the diversity of hunting worldwide.”
