They call themselves the Brighton Hunt Saboteurs.

And they told LBC they arrived at a field near the village of Pevenseyman in England on Saturday — all Antifa-like with dark clothing and masked faces — to make sure no illegal hunting took place.

But as cameras rolled, tempers flared.

And at one point, one of the saboteurs got a bit too close for comfort to a woman hunter on horseback. Way too close.

Video shows the saboteur grabbing the woman's horse by the reins — but she wasn't about to take one bit of his antics.

As she ordered the man to “get off my horse," the woman repeatedly whipped the saboteur with her riding crop — a total of 17 vicious whacks.

It apparently did the trick. The guy let go.

Other voices on the video — apparently fellow saboteurs — yelled that horses shouldn't be used as "weapons" and "don't charge horses into people. You can't ride people down."

Here's the clip. (Content warning: Some rough language):

Sussex police are asking for witnesses to come forward, LBC said, and issued the following statement:

"A third party report of an assault has been made after a man was allegedly struck with a riding crop by a horse rider in Herstmonceux on Saturday (November 18).

"The incident happened in a field off Church Road around 12:30 p.m. The victim was reported to have received a bruise and bump to the head, but did not require medical treatment.

“The informant was not a witness to the incident, but police have now identified the alleged victim and an investigation is under way.

"Police are aware of a video reportedly showing the incident being available on social media.”
