About the Thurlow Hunt
Kennel Huntsman & 1st Whipper-In
Elliot started his career working with hounds in 2010 with the Vale of Lune Harriers, from here he spent 3 seasons as 2nd whipper-in to Mr Peel at the North Cotswold, he then crossed the country to join the Quorn in Leicestershire as 1st whipper-in for 3 seasons. “I am delighted to be back working with Mr Peel again and very much look forward to the coming season with the Thurlow”.
David, his wife Katie and son Keiran aged 7 are thrilled to have joined the team at the Thurlow kennels. David has worked with hounds for 15 seasons, the last 9 of these being at the Barlow Hunt.
After a childhood filled with hunting, showing & pony club. Karen landed in a point to point yard where she was lucky enough to have a few rides on four year old maidens. Needless to say she spent more time hitting the deck than finishing! Dobbin, one of our current hunt horses here at Thurlow kindly shattered her wrist at Garthorpe. Thankfully he makes a better hunt horse than he did racehorse! Horses, hunting & hounds have always been a huge part of Karen’s life and at 20yrs old she travelled to America to whip in & be stud groom to a pack of fox hounds. She spent two valuable seasons there before returning to the UK where she spent a further season whipping in professionally before spending 6 years as a stud groom & amateur whip. She is qualified as an equine lecturer but she has traded grumpy teenagers back for horses & hunting!
