kleck.neil.coyoteWhipper-in Neil Amatt races to get between hounds and coyote, turns to stop hounds.

Nancy Kleck is a sporting artist who follows the hunt with her camera to record action images of hounds, horses, riders, and foxes for later use in her paintings. She rides with former Blue Ridge huntsman Chris Howells, now a wheel whipper-in, and has discovered that her photos are of use not only to her in her art, and not only to the field members for their enjoyment, but sometimes even to the staff. Nancy writes:

I’ve been following the hunt nearly every meet since huntsman Guy Allman and first whipper-in Neil Ammatt came on board. I've gotten some fun photos as a hilltopper, and it's been a really interesting perspective, listening for the horn, trying to interpret it, and keeping an eye out for anything that moves with a brush!

Nancy is the hardiest follower I know... always on the outside of the truck in the coldest weather - just in case an opportunity presents itself!!
Her hunting work is beautiful - what an artist - and very generous with her photos, I have lots at home in England with happy memories of sunny VA!
