Student captures the essence of the hunt through her photography.

PHOTOJOURNALISM student Rebecca Saunders spent two days with the Curre and Llangibby Hunt last November photographing them during their exercises and gathering at a meet.

The photos she took beautifully and evocatively capture the atmosphere of a late autumn morning spent in the company of a pack of hounds.

The hounds are kennelled near Chepstow and the hunt ranges over the rolling, well-wooded countryside of south Monmouthshire.

The Llangibby Hunt dates back to 1641 and the Curre hunt to the latter part of the 17th century. The combined hunt now meets on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.
