Excerpt from Cross Country With Horse and Hound
Strange as it may seem, there never has been a book published in America on the subject of cross-country riding to hounds. Let this be the author's apology - if any is required - for presenting this work.
Having moved into a hunting country without previous knowledge of the sport, the author undertook to follow the hounds after witnessing a run from a friend's carriage, and, needless to say, made about as many mistakes as it was possible for a "green un" to accomplish. It was greatly to his mortification and chagrin to discover how much of a sinner he had been against the unwritten laws of the hunting-field - so much so that years later he determined, if an opportunity should present itself, to place in the hands of similar uninitiated ones something in the nature of a guide. Curiously enough, the rules are misunderstood even by a large number of those who follow the hounds. Especially is this true of the men who simply "hunt to ride."
