The Cottesmore Hunt is one of the world’s longest-established and most famous foxhunts whose history is inextricably linked with that of the Earls of Gainsborough and Lonsdale. From 1666 until 2005, the Cottesmore hunted foxes with hounds in and around the ancient English county of Rutland. In spite of the UK’s 2004 Hunting Act which aimed to ban traditional forms of foxhunting, the Cottesmore continues to flourish, hunting within the law. Its ‘country’ converges with that of its neighbours the Quorn and the Belvoir (Duke of Rutland’s Hounds) in the Leicestershire market town of Melton Mowbray which in its heyday was a magnet for foxhunters worldwide.
