It wasn’t just the legendary hounds chasing one of sport’s most idyllic events.

The Washington Post photojournalist Jonathan Newton pursued his first fox hunt with a fresh eye toward the season’s final ride of Mr. Stewart’s Cheshire Foxhounds.

Newton’s camera captured the countryside near Coatesville, Unionville, and Kennett Square, as well as the hounds, the huntsman, the horses, and the spectators — but not the elusive fox — in a photo essay for The Washington Post with the help of Chloe Coleman.

The fox hunt, steeped in tradition, spans some 30,000 acres and more than a century of history. Read more and see it in full color in The Washington Post by clicking here.
