Hunters, show jumpers, eventers and dressage riders turn - and strip off - for calendar each year and it's all for a good cause

A group of 'Foxy Hunters' have stripped off for a saucy calendar to raise money for an air ambulance.


The amateur models swapped their riding gear for stockings and suspenders for the cheeky shots.

They are all from the horse-riders from South West - a mixture of hunters, show jumpers, or eventers or dressage riders.

The sexy black and white photos were all taken in either the Somerset or Wiltshire area, with some women returning for the second year on the trot.

They came together for The Foxy Hunters 2016 calendar, which has been raising money for an air ambulance for seven years.
Laura Quick, 33, from Honiton, Devon said she was delighted to be part of the project for the second year.

She said: "The shoots are always a lot of fun and over the years the girls who volunteer have become a supportive network for the calendar.
"We certainly have a giggle on location and the photos are always amazing but we never lose sight of the reason why we all give up our time - and our clothes.

"Each year we have raised an amazing amount of money and this is great motivation to continue doing so in the years to come.


"David does an amazing job, the funds raised to date alone speak for themselves. I am more than proud to be a Foxy Hunter!"

The Foxy Hunters Calendar was conceived by photographer David Betteridge in 2009.

After photographing many equestrian events he was aware of the dangerous nature of the sport and the vital role the air ambulance plays in helping injured riders.

Then his friend's life was saved by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance after following a riding accident.

David launched it and to date over £100,000 has been raised to help keep the Air Ambulance Services flying.

He said: "You would be surprised how intimidating it is to photograph all these women at once.
"It's for a great cause though. The time I feel proud is when I go down to give the cheque in."

The calendar is available via the website www.foxyhunters.co.uk priced at £12.50 plus post and packing.
