Deep Run Hunt Marks 125th Anniversary

Members of the Deep Run Hunt (est. 1887) near Richmond, Virginia, marked their 125th anniversary on Sunday, September 30, 2012 with a day of celebration, awards, and the introduction of a new book by Aynsley Miller Fisher recounting the hunt’s history.

For the Love of the Sport—The Horses, Hounds, Foxes and Friends of the Deep Run Hunt Club traces the club’s moves since its founding and illustrates the pressure that land development has put on foxhunting, according to Karin Kapsidelis in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Deep Run’s anniversary celebration was bolstered by the presence of a number of visiting international sportsmen—members of a world-wide alliance working for the future of foxhunting.
