Ok, I apologize for being stupid, but what is the purpose of "drag hunting"? You just take the dogs on a fake hunt?
The dogs actuallt like tearing around the country, as to the riders on the horses - galloping across fields and over hedges etc - they also like the pre drinkies and nibbles and the general social chit-chat
Used to live in hunt area, Prince Charles used to hunt with them sometimes as did Camilla, a certain other late member of the RF used to watch from one of the local farmhouses.
They collect money for charities including the local church. Chasing a fox was the original purpose but when they couldn't do that they just chase the scent
