    Well forgodssakes, Equibrit! I ASKED the FHL editor if there was a prior link and he shrugged!!
    I'm sooo glad you caught it. THIS is why to rely on the collective intelligence of this community.

    I don't think Doug Ginsberg served Congress, though in an expanded article I'll certainly use that tidbit, thanks for the reminder.

    OMG Beverley of course. Quayle (by marriage) and McCarthy (by cartopping.) Close enough for government work .... :)
    I already put in my story for foxhuntinglife.com.

  4. U.S. Congressman/foxhunter? Anybody know if there is (modern) precedent?

    I need to know if any U.S. House of Representatives congressman has been an active foxhunter (in modern day.)
    I know Sen. John Warner hunted here in Virginia, but I'm not finding any reference to...

    Your lesson fees are similar to mine. I charge $100 per day for overnight camps, a little less for day camps, with parents sending a bag of food or goodies or equivalent to help offset the cost of...

    I understand that the only NoVa'ish hunt to go out today (first in many days) was Blue Ridge Hunt, reportedly in their more shale-y country. But,reportedly, it might not have been the best idea .... ...

    I did the math once - averaging 100 hunts, hunter paces or hunt trail rides or assorted mounted opportunities per year - averaging 2+ hours each = that's 200+ hours of riding.
    Plus a half dozen...

    My hunt (in Va.) has a professional horsemens' subscription fee, a good discount. I believe many hunts here do.

    Bugboy
    You are certainly correct noting the 'country meet' point to points offered elsewhere.
    I was merely alarmed at the thought of any sanctioned meet (which Tryon/Block House certainly is)...

    There are definitely not races 'open to the public' at any meet, sanctioned (like Tryon) or point to point.
    They *do* have amateur-apprentice flat races etc., but you start on the point to point...

    For crissakes you guys. It's Virginia in early December, not Ancorage in February. You likely won't need any extra layers.
    And no, Virginia hunts do not typically allow any outerwear.

    There is a "simulated" (drag) hunt planned at the Mount Vernon estate near D.C. on November 14. There is all sorts of breathless information on the estate's website but I'd like to do a little news...

    I do drive-in leave-in dots of borium on all 8 heels. The studded shoes get reset once or twice and the borium dots hold up to that easily (that's about standard for resets on a shoe with no studs...

    No, sorry. The master said someone's name but it was not a BNT, obviously. I'm sure its a local prelim rock star with instruction skills. I can find out if it is important. :)
  19. Here's a Big Adventure for the eventing crowd ... ride/hunt/SKI!

    This board is by far the best resource out there and I throw this to the wind that is CotH's wide-webbed community.
