Abstract

This chapter juxtaposes the developments of foxhunting and classical horsemanship over time, using a performance framework to evaluate how they respectively communicated and continue to communicate messages about social status, group identity and social cohesion of the society in which they are placed. This chapter considers how social conditions shape and are shaped by these horsemanship pursuits, in explaining the different trajectories these have had over time. In the 21stcentury, classical horsemanship has a new prestige marker through inscription on the UNESCO list for intangible cultural heritage. In contrast, hunting live foxes has been banned since 2004through an Act of Parliament and a legal decision by the UK House of Lords, with the ban coming to stand for a triumph for democracy.
