The photographs speak for themselves in this black and white coffee table masterpiece...Apart from the stirring introduction from writer Robin Lane Fox, the work of the young photographer stands alone...Each of Lockhart's pieces has a resonance, the character of the horses, hounds, country and people fairly vibrating from every page.
Her capturing of the mood of the day, from hazy dawns to crisp afternoons, is delightful...anyone who's ever been in the hunting field will find much to recognise and love in this book.
Equally, for those of us who love the countryside, horses, hounds or people will discover much art over which to linger.
Amateur Photographer: 'Lockhart's pictures cover the gamut of hunting activity; a line of hounds, noses quivering, setting off in snow carpeted woodland; steam coming off horses; competitors in a Best Dressed Huntsman competition; a young follower dwarfed by a huge hay bale; huntsmen relaxing in the pub afterwards...Whether you support hunting or not, it is an undeniably photogenic activity and Lockhart's pictures unquestionably do it justice.'
