Although it went out of common use early in the last century, it is still worn by those few traditionalists who have the style to carry it off!

Blue Birdseye Stock Ties: They're Back!

70Karen Ewbank is ready for cubhunting in her blue birdseye stock tie.

Back in early May we ran a story titled “The Blue Birdseye Stock Tie: A Smashing Style from the Past.” The story, about a little-known, mostly forgotten, yet very attractive and traditional item of foxhunting attire, turned out to be our best-read story of the entire spring season!

We thought it would be fun to bring the blue birdseye stock tie back into the hunting fields of the twenty-first century, and many of you agreed. So we researched the fabric, purchased a few yards, and launched its rebirth at the Virginia Foxhound Show at the end of May. It was a hit!

Here then, is a reminder: our informal season is only weeks away. If you’d like to start the season sporting one of your own, click here!

2015 Foxhunting Life Calendars Are Shipping

FNN 002 Foxhunt Cover 2015 Lores

Here’s our 2015 Foxhunting Life Calendar, featuring all new photos and ready to ship. We’ve been publishing our appointments calendar since 1998, and our annual collection of foxhunting images continues to represent the finest examples of the sporting photographer’s art.

This year's cover is Douglas Lees’s photograph of Piedmont huntsman Spencer Allen, expectantly drawing a rough patch of woods, horn at the ready, watching a couple of his hard working hounds pick their way in search of the fox. His horse, knowing the job at hand, is watching hounds as well. The drab winter woods, fallen stump, dead oak leaves, and bare limbs through which we see the figures are lit by a single splash of scarlet and flashes of white in the huntsman’s stocktie and britch, the bay hunter's blaze, and the hounds. An unusual photograph telling a timeless story.

As before, photos of the hound show grand champions that you read about in FHL throughout the past hound show season are to be found inside the back cover.

Foxhunting Life Calendars will keep track of your busy schedule while they brighten up your tack room and kitchen. And they make great gifts for your cocktail party hosts and for landowners in your hunting country.

2013 Unveiled!

FNN-056-Foxhunt-Calendar 2013 Cover Digital

Here’s our Foxhunting Life 2013 Calendar, featuring all new photos and ready to ship on September 1. We’ve been publishing this appointments calendar since 1998—first for the MFHA and now for Foxhunting Life—and our annual collection of foxhunting images continues to represent the finest examples of the sporting photographer’s art.

It’s a joyful task each year to choose the cover photo for our calendar. This year, Liz Callar’s low angle shot of Orange County’s red ring-necked American foxhounds—ears flying and exuberantly gamboling in front  (where hounds should be!) of huntsman Stephen “Reg” Spreadborough, who is standing in the irons looking on ahead—jumped out at us as the perfect cover shot. It speaks to the color and action of sport in the field as we love it to be.

As before, photos of the hound show grand champions that you’ve been reading about in FHL throughout the hound show season are still to be found inside the back cover.

Foxhunting Life calendars will prove to be indispensable in keeping track of your busy schedule while they brighten up your tack room and kitchen. And they make great gifts for your party hosts and for landowners in your hunting country.

Reader Survey - Point-to-Points

pollAll sanctioned steeplechase meets are covered by the Steeplechase Times (and other publications), and interested race followers are well-advised to seek their excellent coverage. Unsanctioned hunt point-to-points, however, are not covered by S-T. Since FHL views steeplechasing as yet another dimension of the foxhunting year, we have brought you weekly reports of many of the hunt meets throughout the spring season, featuring the award-winning photography of Douglas Lees. Please help us publish what you like by taking this quick survey.

Reader Survey - Poetry

A recent FHL News item, “The Happiest Pair in Ireland” (above), reported that a reworked version of Will Ogilvie’s poem, “The Happiest Man in England” (just above) was read to the bride and groom. The News report reminded us of that wonderful Ogilvie poem—the original, that is—and we hope readers will enjoy it here.

Ogilvie and others wrote many brilliant foxhunting poems which we would like to share from time to time and collect in our Literature section, but only if readers have an appetite for poetry. Please help us publish what you like by taking this quick survey.
