After foxhunting in an Ice Arena, what could be better?
Aside from Partridge hunting, there could only be horse hockey.
The horses wear Ice horseshoes throughout the foxhunt and/or Partridge hunt as well as during the horse hockey match, which itself has the same rules as Polo
Audience is packed to the rafters throughout the day.

       I am totally opposed to the concept of rafter-packing audiences, it is just plain cruel.

       Coincidentally enough, Helium - that is the rink where the Championships are held - Pandemonium
Po... Well, maybe "Standing Room Only"

       Ice horseshoes... do you mean some sort of shoe that enables the horse to grip the ice better (with small ice picks built in), or are you talking about skating horses? Yipes.   

       This would be more accurately called "ice polo" than "horse hockey" ...

       I've got nothing better to do, so I guess I'll attend. I'm afraid it might get ugly when the zamboni hits the dung though, so I'm going to join those in the rafters.
