Snickersville Hounds Final Hunt Report Of The Season

Banbury Cross, March 20th, 10:00 a.m.--This meet was a joint special occasion, to host nearly a score of folks up from Belle Meade, Va., and a make-up for the snowed out Junior's Day. It turned out to be one of the best days of the year. I arrived at the meet with five horses on--two for guests (one who rode sidesaddle), one for our kennelman and sometimes whipper, my horse Beau and my young daughter's pony, Hanna.

As with any foxhunting group around the world, the members of Kenada Fox Hounds in Rockdale, Texas, have amassed a wealth of colorful anecdotes and wild tales over the years. But there’s one story that Kenada members particularly love to recount: The Rowboat Incident.
