I would like to know how horsemen and women in the UK feel about this ban. I associate fox hunting with the UK. Did the people get to vote on this? Pros and cons please...Nancy from the US

No Nancy the people didn't get to vote on this, it was decided by the elected government of the time, the Prime Minister of which has since stated that the ban was “one of the domestic legislative measures I most regret”
And a report last year by the Better Government Initiative stated:
"Over the last 20 years, the public and the media have come to regard several events as notorious examples of bad government: the Community Charge (now remembered as the Poll Tax) in 1990, the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, the failure of the Child Support Agency, the Hunting Act 2004, the story of the Millennium Dome.”
