18 Oct 2014: Visit to Hunt Lodge Equipagem do Stº Huberto
On Saturday, 18th October twenty three RBC members and guests had the opportunity to visit a traditional Portuguese Hunt lodge, the Equipagem de Santo Huberto, in the Ribatejo. There, we had a fascinating glimpse of how the hounds and horses are trained and how a hunt takes place. Foxes are wily animals and it seems that, more often than not, they manage to evade their hunters.
We were graciously received by Dom Estevão Lencastre, Master of the Fox Hunt, and other officials of the Equipagem, who hosted a most enjoyable lunch in the cosy, traditional clubhouse. Gifts were exchanged and our hosts extended a warm and sincere welcome to our members for future visits.
