Commentary
Well, the day has come, it's the Pony Club meet, the day when so many of the regular field have 'something else on' and the day that even your most ardent thrusters ride at the back of the field. "It's their day" they say but don't you believe them, they're terrified they'll get ridden over by the PC brigade. 
The Master has finished his traditional speech although these days it's not quite the same one and has called "hounds please". 
At that signal, bedlam for the rest of the day is in order. The first 40 riders to follow the hounds have that fixed, stern expression normally seen on the faces of cavalry just before the charge as they jostle for position to be nearest the action. Woe betide anyone who gets in their way. (From experience, it hurts).

Following them there is a mixture of a carnival and a riot with out of control ponies, some without riders, anxious cries and sreams from fearful mothers mixed with cries to fathers of "do something", all this coupled with the tears, screams and whoops of delight from the PC members who either want to get on or go home and all mixed in with the sound of steel shoes on tarmac beating out numerous cadences from walk, trot, canter and gallop, all within a small area surrounded by well wishers on foot  now frightened for their own personal safety.

Happy days!

My own most memorable impression from many years ago was to participate in a 'charge' of about 3 dozen PC riders in a loose line abreast formation in an out of control gallop (about 20 lenghts in front of the Field Master) all determinef to be the first through the open gate in front and all determined not to give way to anyone else.
It's a good job that our ponies had more sense than we did, but the moment was glorious, the resulting 'mele' an exiting blur and the subsequent hospital quite an adventure in itself. The hospital had a name for this traditional annual day, they called it Collar Bone Wednesday.

Enough of this! We've all been there, done that and had a great time. They are the future of Hunting in this country and Pony Club days in the hunting field are to be enjoyed and cherished by everyone.
Well done to the Pony Club, may you ride over us for ever!! 
Put a set on your offspring's cake and re-live your own memories.
