The Master and Hounds

Saint Hubert has been the patron saint of hunters for centuries. This short video clip shows a French hunt club at its annual St. Hubert Mass in 2009. In the town square outside the church, framed by charming houses and shops, the huntsmen play their horns and the hounds pile up on each other to wolf down a little treat prepared for them. Their meal lasts all of 30 seconds to the laughter and enjoyment of the townsfolk, children and those on horseback. Note the elegance of the ladies in their riding costumes and side saddles.
