Disclaimer: For those who are concerned about foxes — our hunt is a “drag” hunt which means that we “chase” a scent of anise oil that is laid down in the morning by human foxes. No actual foxes are involved. It’s all about the chase, not the capture.
2012 was a great year for our hunt. The hounds were great, the weather was fine and everyone had a lot of fun. I missed quite a few of the fall hunts because of Freedom’s abscesses, but I was still able to ride in some of the best ones.
I put together a slide show for our hunt dinner with some of the highlights. If these photos of people having fund don’t make you want to try foxhunting . . .
Keep in mind that I took many of these photos while riding. I have perfected the art of riding one handed and of course deleted the many photos of my saddle and the ground! I didn’t take all the photos. We are very lucky to have several dedicated photographers who come to our hunts and then share the bounty with our members.
