Through the New England countryside, riders take part in an adventure at once ancient and modern: A formal fox hunt, no fox necessary. (Photographs by Jessica Rinaldi/Globe Staff)

The hounds follow closely behind their Huntsman and Kennelman Kate Selby in Shoreham, VT. The dogs wear GPS collars so that Selby will be able to find them if they go astray. In New England, most fox hunts are drag hunts, so the hounds are not chasing a real fox but rather a scent. (Jessica Rinaldi/Globe Staff)
