Emma Holloway prepares to ride out for a day's foxhunting from her 17th century home, Pen Y Lan House, which has been in her family's hands for over 160 years. The Wynnstay Hunt, named after Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, dated back to the 18th century and hunted on country estates in Shropshire, Cheshire and north Wales. Hunting with dogs in England and Wales became illegal on 18th February 2005 despite legal challenges to the ban and many hunts vowed to continue the ancient sport of foxhunting, risking prosecution.
