A young man and woman sit on a hillside looking out over green fields and trees. The woman looks over her shoulder away from the young man, who is sitting slightly behind looking up at her and tentatively holding her hand. Her attention is focused on a man on horseback, riding along a path below and towards them. She is dressed in a low cut, white blouse with frilly trim around the neck and cuffs, and blue detail; she also wears a full length, red skirt and holds a hat in her right hand. The man is dressed in breeches, with a white shirt finished with ruffles under a black jacket. A black and white dog rests at the feet of the man and woman; a broad collar around its neck, looking in same direction as the woman. In the bottom right corner, a whip is laid across the entrance of a rabbit burrow and a hat is placed on the grass above the hole.
