Novara, 17th April 2016. One of the most traditional equestrian events, which has been deeply rooted in England since the end of the XVIII century, was carried in the countryside around Novara.
“The Fox Hunt”, which nowadays is strictly a virtual event, evokes that flavour which combines tradition with passion for the equestrian discipline, where male and female riders put to the test the capacities and qualities of their own horse in an enjoyable country ride that involves overcoming natural and artificial hurdles.
An event which is by no means gory but, on the contrary, in complete harmony with our times that wish to see nature respected, with its flora and fauna, thus ensuring that it plays a leading role. The Foxhounds with their horse friends play a prominent role in creating the most perfect ambiance.
The event, organized by the Representation of Novara and V.C.O. of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George and of the Milanese Association for hunting on horseback, has had as its starting point the Castello di Morghengo, a charming medieval castle.
The objective of this historical initiative is to create a bond between sport and solidarity. All the participants (male and female riders) had contributed to the event their caps which will be donated to the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George to purchase basic food items for the poor families of Novara.
