That is NOT the horse for a fox-hunting picture at all...how silly and contrived.
Nevertheless, my kind of scene.
Ditto what Main Line Sportsman said; first of all, when riding aside one wears an apron that covers both legs and both pommels of the saddle completely, down to the rider's boots. Also, a lady aside would never, EVER wear a lurid shad of red. "Pink" coats are worn by hunt staff and gentlemen members. The Paint horse I actually have less problem with; not the classic picture, but today good horses are harder to find, so you ride anything that'll be pleased to haul you 'round the country . . .
@Greenfield, so true about the horse trade. With Obammy lifting the ban on the sale of horse meat, the prices have gone up even on the most stale and greener horse. What once was only worth $250, is now worth $350 or more.
House reminds me of lot of Jane Seymour's place near Bath, England. It's called 'St. Catherines' When I was there taking photos she came her driveway in a shiny black pickup truck and she had her hair in a ponytail. As I drove off toward Bath she followed me all the way into town. I thought I was in trouble for being so close to her estate but she turned off on another road in Bath.
