The November morning was unseasonably warm as I tacked up my beautiful Cleveland Bay/TB cross, Fearnought. It was a surprise that I had come home from school, but with my mother keeping him fit for me, I knew that he would be all ready for a day’s hunting. Conveniently, the Blue Ridge Hunt (VA) meet was only a fifteen-minute hack from my grandmother’s stable where I keep my horse. By the time we arrived I was already very warm in my formal coat and wondering, ‘Did I drive all the way home for nothing?’

Hi Denya Dee, loved your account of hunting with the Blue Ridge Hounds. It fanned my memories of galloping along in your beautiful Blue Ridge country and old friends! Best to your mom and grandmother.... ..and of course, Mac and family.
