I've got an unusual problem. A cheeky little fox has taken to playing grandma's footsteps with me while I'm riding in the school. He starts off about 10 metres away, running off whenever I come past on a horse and last night he ended up in the school with us! Fortunately the horse I ride is very well behaved, but it's not doing a lot for our concentration levels. Any suggestions?

Weird, we've had a few visits from foxes too! A few days on the trot there was a fox the was standing at the same end of the school watching us ride – on an almost dark evening my friend's horse found him a bit scary and started spooking at it! And a few weeks ago I went to get a friend's horse in for her and a fox was stood next to the horse watching me walk towards them. He only trotted off a bit as I started to put the headcollar on and stood and watched us leave from a safer distance. I can't believe how tame they seem. Not sure how to get rid of them, but it's really strange - I've definitely seen more of them recently. Do you think it might be anything to do with the hunting ban?
