Neo Hoodening

"Hoodening, also called Hodening, is an East Kent tradition vaguely related to Mumming and the Morris dance, and dating back at least to the mid-18th century.

The common feature to all groups was the appearance of a Hooden Horse - a horse's head mounted on a pole, with a sackcloth attached to hide the bearer. The head would normally have a hinged jaw which could snap shut with a mighty crack.
Despite occasional breaks, the tradition is a living one, and is currently performed by several teams around East Kent.
