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.

2017 Unveiled!

cover small

Here’s our 2017 Foxhunting Life Calendar, ready to ship on September 1 and featuring all new photos. 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.

Douglas Lees shot the cover photograph of huntsman Reg Spreadborough flying a coop alongside his red ring-necked Orange County hounds—a fleeting glimpse of huntsman, horse, and hounds in motion for one single instant...gone the next.

Represented in this year’s photo collection are hunts in California, England, Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. Images include horses and hounds in action, seductive scenes shot in the most beautiful hunting landscapes imaginable, and photographs that simply tell a story about foxhunting.

As before, photos of the hound show grand champions that you read about in Foxhunting Life 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.
