Members and guests of the Holcombe Hunt donned their masks and gathered at Samlesbury Hall to celebrate Susan Simmons’ ten years as a master of the hunt and to welcome Paul Conway as a new master.
The evening followed a White Lady theme, which recognised the history of the hall, with specially created cocktails followed by a question and answer session with Nigel Coupe, the leading international show jumper.
The evening included the ‘White Lady Dash’ with entrants racing over obstacles hoping to win a prize of a week in Tenerife. The winner was none other than Nigel Coupe! Guests danced well into early hours with help from DJ Darrell Edwards who kept the party going.
