The Boxing Day Hunt: Cotswold Vale [00:55]
Eliza goes out to support her local Hunt on Boxing Day near the Forest of Dean; the Cotswold Vale. Point to Pointing is amateur jumps racing and both horses and riders learn their trade in the hunting field. As well as pointers; hunting also offers a super activity for retired race horses where they can still enjoy themselves; and a great way for young children to learn how to ride and negotiate obstacles on their ponies. The activity of foxhunting protects rural habitats from development and is thus why many Conservationists and geographers support it.

Racing is a true multi ethnic community anyway from the Maktoums as owners to the gaps in skilled stable staff being filled by Czechs, Poles and many from the Indian subcontinent, Mauritius etc. and owners from all over the world. The boys decided that though they can't gamble for religious reasons what they felt it was good to respect tradition so what they could do is pool a pound each and choose a horse from the paddock they liked the look of and get a friend place the bet for them. If they won they would donate it to charity - and they did! One thing popular at the point to point is to bet a horse without the favourite. They did this three times and won each time at 7/2; 5/2 and 3/1 !! It isn't the gambling that Racing is necessarily about. It is the intellectual challenge of ...
