You are welcome.
Yes, it is.
The Hubertus Hunt takes place on the first Sunday in November every year.
Here is a gallery: Hubertusjagten 2007
Traditionally it's members of the DRF who present the prizes.
It's actually a modern form of the Parforce hunting, I wrote about above.
Nowadays, no animals are hunted and no hounds are used. The riders instead "chase" a front rider, who wear a fox-tail.
The route is pretty long and you need to be an accomplished rider to even attend let alone complete. Tradition also dicates that you wear proper red and white riding gear.
There are actually two routes, one for full grown horses and skilled riders and a shorter one for ponies and much younger riders.
During the ride they jump fences and change pace before reacing the target. If you don't jump all fences, you can't win. This is not just about being the fastest rider.
One of the absolute spectators favorites is the water-pond. Here they (and the cameras) gleefully wait in the hope that some riders will fall off and end up in the cold and muddy water.
Pony-riders who fall off are however met with a good deal more sympathy.
- Who knows, perhaps some of M&F's children will inherit Mary's interest for horses and take part some time in the future.
(I somehow can't imagine Joachim's children being particularly interested in horses.... Horse power, yes! But four legged creatures? No!)
