SLW, you can cast your hounds East, we'd love to have you visit us in Missouri. Lord knows where I'd end up myself with a bitless bridle.

Our opening hunt had the biggest field in years. It was a zoo. I went back and hid in the junior field to try to keep my five year old quiet. Heck, there were 16 in the junior field even. That included a few of us adults to set bad examples for the juniors. I should have had the sense to take my more experienced hunt horse but I had no idea the field would be so big.
