Simon Carr enjoyed crossing the country, sampling various packs.  But then he discovered the Four Shires. He quickly appreciated that Hunt’s country combined all the best aspects of hunting in England: old turf, rolling hills, inviting hedges, stone walls and moorland panoramas.  And he found that Bloodhounds’ diligence offered the chance of viewing superb hound work. Lovers of the countryside, he and his wife, Jen, are enthusiastic followers.  Thanks to his vision, the pack will soon be almost entirely homebred. 

After his father’s death Simon took over his farm.  As a master for eight seasons, he helped administer the Hunt, represented it at meetings of the Masters of Draghounds and Bloodhounds Association and ensured that the Four Shires appeals to a large section of the community.  His clear-headed logical approach and unstinting support have been invaluable.
