If you were out hunting and the master decided to steer the field toward a hedge like this, “Oh crap” would be an understated response. And you wonder why they carry flasks.
I started looking into the origins of this video and found that it is from Britain’s Ledbury Hunt, whose territory is known for its legendary hedges. Here are a couple more videos, if you find this sort of thing as thrilling to watch as I do.
Besides the fact that they are clearly crazy as crap, here’s another reason why we heart the Ledbury Hunt: They have an official “Tumble Club.” Says the website, “Tumblers come in a variety of forms, and at the end of the season everyone joins together at the Tumble Club party to reminiscence and commiserate on the season and falls past. All are welcome at this event, tumblers and non-tumblers.”

Wow. Hope that person has a change of clothes back in the lorry.
Also, these horsepeople clearly know how to party. Here’s a video from their 2009 Hunt Ball.
Ledbury Hunt, y’all are officially insane. And for that, Horse Nation salutes you.
