A TEENAGER was thrown from his horse and killed during one of the country's leading hunts in Cheshire yesterday.

Anthony Muskett, 17, was riding with the Cheshire Hunt in a field at Spurstow when his mount tripped after attempting to jump a hedge, trapping him beneath the horse.

Cheshire police said Anthony, an experienced horseman who lived on a farm at Saighton, was taken to hospital, but pronounced dead on arrival. The hunt was halted immediately and its members informed.
