Donald controls the hounds (or maybe they control him), and Goofy is riding on Horace Horsecollar, as the fox outwits both of them. Some other Disney characters are seen briefly in the hunting party at the end.

Storyline

A monocle-wearing Goofy and a bugle-bearing Donald Duck are two unlikely members of the English gentry engaging in their favorite sport: the fox hunt. The ever-frustrated Donald is burdened with a pack of unruly hounds, while Goofy is saddled (so to speak) with a shy horse, who is too timid to jump over a hedge. Goofy has to show him how to do it himself. Meanwhile, the quarry of the hunt proves to be wilier than your average fox. Eventually, Donald thinks he has the fox trapped, but the clever little beast manages to pull a rather stinky switcheroo on the overconfident duck. Written by J. Spurlin

Cruel, evil and barbaric.
19 September 2006 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I'm dead against Fox hunting. It's just plain evil and it's not even a bloody sport. It's just bloody. It's banned here in Britain though evil toffs still participate in and don't get arrested.

Donald and Goofy are on such a hunt. They don't manage to kill the fox as the horses are lame and the dogs are too dumb to rip the poor animal apart. In fact, nothing at all really happens in this 8-minute cartoon other than the dogs leading Donald the wrong way.

While I hate the hunt you have to appreciate that this was made during Disney's non-PC days. Nothing like this would be made now. The very core of what Disney build his empire on has been quashed by the PC dunderhead execs that run it now. If Walt were alive today he'd be furious.
